Very delicious and everyone wants the recipe!
I was looking for a recipe that my mom used to make during our childhood, that sounded very much like this one, with the almonds, jam and meringue layer. I was so looking forward to making it, but unfortunately, it was not that good. Does not taste much like almonds, the crust was wayy to thick for one tray, I had to divide it into an 8X8 pyrex pan and a pie plate. Did the same with the meringue filling, because when it's too thick, it stays creamy inside, and often could taste very eggy. I made sure the meringue dried out in the oven, to make sure no eggy taste is left in it. Anyway, I am so sorry to say, it was not a hit in my family. My dad and husband thought they tasted good, but all other members of the family didn't care for it. I often make meringue cookies, but this tastes nothing like them. Sorry :(
These came out wonderful and even my 13 year old son thought they were easy to make (never too young to teach males how to cook!)
These bars are very unusual, but very good. I used walnuts since I didn't have almonds, but the nuts aren't the key ingredient, as the name suggests. The jelly you choose is probably going to be the most pronounced flavor, so pick something you really like! I used seeless red raspberry, and that seemed to go well with the coconut flavor. Very unique!
go easy on the almond, or it's blinding
Yummy! Everybody loved them at the party!!
very rich and yummy! I doubled the recipe and baked in a 15X10. I used seedless red raspberry jam. Thanks Carol! Sorry I just realized I rated the wrong recipe! I have not tried this I should have rated berry almond bars. I will try this one soon though. Sorry for the confusion!
This was an excellent recipe but I do have one caveat. I doubled the recipe with great results, trying to plan ahead for my sons' school lunches .... alas, it did not occur to me that meringue toppings don't freeze very well!
