Calling For Christmas Cookie Recipes — 2011 (V)

I like bar cookies, because I think the rectangular shapes help to make any cookie tin look more visually appealing.  This cookie would make a tasty addition to any cookie collection.

Brown Sugar-Almond Bars

Ingredients:  1 cup butter; 6 tablespoons butter; 1 cup confectioner’s sugar; 2 cups flour; 1 cup brown sugar; 2 tablespoons water; 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice; 1 1/2 cups sliced almonds, 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla.

Baking:  Grease 13 by 9 inch pan.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

Cream 1 cup butter and confectioner’s sugar.  Add flour and mix well.  Pat mixture into pan.  Bake 15 minutes, until light golden color.  Remove and allow to cool. 

In a saucepan, melt the remaining 6 tablespoons of butter.  Add brown sugar, water, and lemon juice.  Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat.  Stir in almonds and vanilla.  Spread almond mixture over crust.  Bake 15 to 20 minutes.  Cool until warm, then cut into bars.

  1. So this year Im making each of my friends a tin with assorted cookies/desserts in it for Christmas. I was wondering if there are any good cookie or other dessert recipes that call for mint extract? I recently bought some and I wanna use it in something lol… Anyway, so if anyone could share any cookie/dessert recipes using mint extract, thanks!
