Swedish Nut Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
it turned out very well, but I'd say is more like a cake than "bars". I'd recommend using your stand mixer if you have one! I did the egg whites 1st, then put them in a separate bowl while I mixed the yolk mixture in the mixer. I'd also recommend adding the almond extract to the yolks before the nuts go in, just easier to mix in. Be sure to serve with some whipped cream & save a few ground almonds to sprinkle on top!

Glazed Almond Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2007
the cookies turned out, except the recipe does not give any info for the glaze. They are like the chinese almond cakes in that they are cake like in texture (puffy, not flat like the photo) - I guess because of the cake flour. I would recommend roasting the whole almonds to make them crunchy on the cookies...they are kind of soft otherwise.
