I keep forgetting to post this!! (Sorry ladies!) I made this at my last Girl’s Day/Night Out and it was a HIT! If you like ALMOND flavoring, you will like these!

I found the recipe at my FAVORITE cooking blog, Cookin’ Up North. Laurie has INCREDIBLE recipes!! (She’s SO SWEET, too!) I even have folder on my desktop for her recipes because I save so many of them!

Here are the Almond Bars I made last month:

This is the original recipe from Laurie’s blog. However, I wanted a little thicker layer of frosting (as shown above) so I doubled the recipe for the frosting. The frosting recipe as shown below is the single frosting recipe.

Almond Bars

1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 c. softened butter {no subs} Mix and pat in an ungreased 9×13 pan. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
