Almond Squares

Published May 29, 2008        by Nicole

Well you've found the right place if you're looking to make almond squares. Now they're not your typical dessert bars, or anything like cookies. No, these special squares are unique with their delicious almonds and special ingredients. So if you'd like to accept the challenge and try making them yourself, read on!

  • 1/2 pound butter

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 3/4 cup sifted flour

  • 1 cup ground almonds

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 6 egg yolks

  • 16 blanched almonds

Cream the butter; gradually add the sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Combine the flour, almonds and salt.

Add a little at a time to the butter mixture, alternating with 1 egg yolk at a time. Turn into a buttered 8 inch square pan. Mark off 16 squares and place an almond in the center of each square.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 35 minutes or until browned. Cut into squares.
