Almond Bars

How long has it been since I posted a Tuesday recipe? I'm guessing it's been at least a year or more. Well, here is a good one for you if you've been waiting...

Almond Bars

3 sticks of margarine
3 cups sugar 
4 eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons almond extract
3 cups flour

Blend margarine and sugar. Add in eggs. Add in the rest of the ingredients. Spread batter into a greased 10x15 pan. Sprinkle with sugar and sliced almonds. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. 

These bars are delicious! They are moist and have a great almond flavor. I got this recipe from my mom, who helped make them every year for Orange City's Tulip Festival. The Christian school sold these yummy Dutch treats at their food stand. I'm guessing they still sell them, but I haven't been back home for Tulip Festival in a few years.

Try them yourself. They are so easy and so good!
