Almond bars are simple to put together, but with their sparkly sugar tops, they’ll stand out among the widest spread of desserts. Trust me, you’ll want to make these again.
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups granulated sugar, plus a few more tablespoons for sprinkling
Pinch of salt
2 cups flour
1 cup melted butter
2 tsp almond extract
¼ cup sliced or slivered almonds
Beat together eggs and sugar until well combined. Mix in the butter, flour, salt, and almond flavoring until just combined. Pour into a greased 9×13 pan and sprinkle the top with almonds and more granulated sugar. Bake at 350⁰ for 25-30 minutes, or until there is a light golden brown crust on top and a toothpick comes out clean. Do not overbake.
