Calling for Christmas Cookie Recipes (Cont.)

I think assortments of cookies should be, well, an assortment.  Different kinds of cookies and treats should be mixed together, to provide the sampler with a meaningful choice with respect to taste, shape, consistency, and color.  Bar cookies, like this excellent recipe, are an essential part of the mix.

Almond Chocolate Bars

Ingredients:  1 8-ounce package of softened cream cheese; 3/4 cup softened butter; 3/4 cup sugar; 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla; 2 cups all-purpose flour; 1/2 teaspoon baking power; 1 6-ounce package of milk chocolate chips; 1/2 cup toasted sliced almonds

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.  Combine cream cheese and butter in mixing bowl and beat well.  Gradually add sugar and vanilla, beating until light and fluffy.  Combine flour and baking powder, add to batter, and beat well.  Spread mixture evenly in an ungreased 9″ x 13″ baking pan and bake for 15 minutes.  Sprinkle chips immediately over baked layer and let stand for 5 minutes or until chocolate melts.  Spread chocolate evenly to the edges of the pan and sprinkle with almonds.  Cool and cut into bars.
