Almond Bars

Almond Bars

Bars:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 TB water
1 cup water
1/2 cup butter
1 cup flour
3 eggs
1/2 tsp almond extract

Frosting:
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 TB butter
2 TB milk
1/2 tsp almond extract

For the bars: Preheat oven to 350.  Mix the first three ingredients together until crumbly and then press into a 13x9 pan.  It will barely cover the bottom of the pan.

In a saucepan, add the 1 cup water and 1/2 cup of butter and heat to boiling.  Remove from heat and cool.  Then add 1 cup flour, stirring until smooth.  Add 3 eggs to the mixture, one at a time until blended.  Add almond extract and then spread on the crust in pan.  Bake for 55-60 minutes.  Cool.

For the frosting:  Beat together all the ingredients, altering to the consistency you desire.  Frost cooled bars.
