Dutch Almond Bars Recipe

Sweet and creamy butter, plus tasty almond goodness make for a rich and delicious Dutch Almond Bars Recipe.

Prep Time:15 minutes
Cook time:20 minutes

Ingredients:

1 cup Sugar, divided
1 cup Butter, softened
½ tsp Almond Extract
1 Egg, separated
2 cups Flour
½ tsp Cinnamon
1 TBSP Water
1 cup Sliced Almonds

Directions:

• Preheat oven to 350°
• Spray a 15”x10”x1” baking pan with non-stick spray (or lightly grease).
• In a large mixing bowl, combine ½ cup sugar, butter, almond extract and egg yolk; beat until well combined.
• Add the flour and cinnamon; mix well.
• Press the crust mixture into the bottom of your greased pan, making sure the entire bottom is fully covered. Tip: dust your hand lightly with flour to prevent stinking to the dough. Start pressing lightly with your finger-tips, then uses the meaty-part of your palm to distribute the dough evenly.
• In a small bowl, combine the water and the egg white; beat until frothy.
• Brush the egg white mixture over the dough in the pan.
• Sprinkle the sliced almonds evenly over the egg white covered dough, top with remaining ½ cup of sugar.
• Bake at 350° for 20-23 minutes, or until lightly golden brown.
• Immediately cut the Dutch Almond Bars into 3”x2” bars, do not remove them from the pan.
• Allow the cut bars to cool in the pan for 1 hour, or until completely cool.

Hubby was bugging me for a sweet treat, so I whipped these up. They are simple to make. They are also delicate, but will keep for days. By that I mean that they break into pieces easily (these are quite rich), but they don’t go funky quickly.

I think they are totally delicious!
