Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 13 x 9-inch baking pan with no-stick cooking spray.
  2. Spread almonds on baking sheet. Bake 7 to 10 minutes or until golden brown, stirring several times. Cool completely. Chop coarsely.
  3. Combine brown sugar, shortening, coffee crystals, milk, vanilla and almond extracts in large bowl; beat at medium speed until well blended. Add eggs; beat well.
  4. Combine flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda in medium bowl. Add to shortening mixture; beat at low speed just until blended. Stir in chocolate chips and reserved almonds. Spread mixture evenly in prepared pan.
  5. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until set. Cool completely on wire rack. Cut into 2 x 1 1/2-inch bars.
  6. Stir coffee and hot water until dissolved; let cool slightly. Combine powdered sugar and coffee in small bowl; stir until well blended. Add additional water, a little at a time, if frosting is too thick, or add additional powdered sugar, if frosting is too thin. Drizzle glaze over bars.

Love the taste of coffee, chocolate, and almonds together.

I like the idea of this cookie but too dry and too much coffee. I'm going to make some adjustments and try it again. I do like the almond accent.

My family liked these cookie bars, but if you don't like coffee and almonds, don't make them! Those two flavors are very strong but I love them together! I followed other reviewers advice and cooked for only 24 minutes... perfect!

I followed this recipe EXACTLY. Only change: I baked only 25 minutes. I'm baking at 8000 feet, so that could have something to do with it. It turned out more like a brownie/cookie than a cookie bar. It's VERY rich... but you still want more... Planning on packing these into cookie baskets for Christmas. What a treat!

Ended up way too dry and overwhelming on the coffee.

This is a nice recipe but.. beware it is a lot like a brownie and will dry out if baked to long. My first one I baked 25 minutes and it was dry..I saved it by using a cup of coffee heated with icing sugar and a 1/4 cup of corn syrup. I used a fork to make holes then I brushed it over top with a silicone brush. I did this three time and stored in air tight container and 24 hrs later. wala wonderful bars. the next one I cooked only 20 minutes and pulled it out as soon as the edges were pulling away from the pan. It was excellent.
