Almond Cookie Bars

I love almond cookies. All kinds. I discovered these lovely melt in your mouth cookie bars a while back and I have to make them every once in a while. Sometimes I add a whole or half almond to the top. Other days like this I just make the cookies (which are super simple!!) and let the kids have a treat at night.


These are my favorite cookies. My daughter was amazed at how simple they were to make when I was showing her today. This is definitely one recipe that is going into her box for the future. The whole pan was gone by lunch the next day. I kept going into the kitchen to see little pieces of the cookies gone. All of them loved them.
