Almond Amaretto Bars
1 cup cold butter, cut into cubes
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup powdered confectioners’ sugar
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour, divided use
4 eggs, slightly beaten
2 cups granulated white sugar
1/3 cup amaretto liqueur
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup sliced almonds
Preheat oven to 350 F. Line 9- x 13-inch baking pan with nonstick foil.
Place butter, salt, powdered sugar, and 2 cups of the flour into a food processor. Pulse until a soft dough forms. Do not over-process.
Press dough evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from oven and reduce oven temperature to 325 F.
Place remaining 1/4 cup of flour, eggs, granulated sugar, amaretto, and almond extract in a large bowl.
Beat on medium speed until smooth. Pour evenly over the baked crust and sprinkle with almonds.
Bake an additional 30 to 35 minutes, until filling is firm.
Cool to room temperature. Lift cookie bars out on the foil and cut to desired size to serve or package up to give as a gift.
Yield: 24 to 36 bar cookies, depending on cut size
