  • Beat white sugar and 1 cup butter together in a bowl until fluffy. Add eggs 1 at a time, mixing after each addition. Add 2 teaspoons almond extract and vanilla extract; mix well.

  • Whisk flour, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and baking soda together in a bowl. Add to egg mixture and stir until just combined. Spread onto the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the cookie comes out clean, 10 to 15 minutes; they won't look done. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

  • Beat 1/2 cup butter in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Add 1 teaspoon almond extract and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add confectioners' sugar, 1 cup at a time, mixing until combined. Add heavy cream, 1 tablespoon at a time, until frosting reaches a smooth, spreadable consistency. Spread frosting over cooled cookie bars.

These were really good. A big hit. The dough was thick and I didn't think I would be able to spread it out to the whole pan-- I was sure the pan size was a typo but eventually I did get it spread out and after it was baked the thickness was perfect. Also I had to add a lot more cream to the frosting to make it spreadable. The frosting was also delightful. I'll be making these a lot. Read More

These are sooo good! Turned out perfect. I switched the amount of almond and vanilla and to me it has just the right amount of almond flavor, especially with almond frosting. Hint- use parchment paper over dough to spread it into the pan Read More
