Going Nuts for Sweet Almond Desserts!
By Janets Notebook on September 28, 2011
Once upon a time in a land far, far away, I had kringle. And not just any kringle, but the most deliciously creamy almond kringle ever made. These traditional Scandinavian pastries are a delicacy in the northern part of the U.S With layers of flaky pastry and a variety of sweet fillings, I have long been trying to recreate that perfect bite from so many years ago.
Well, imagine my pleasure when I came across Heather Sturdivan's delightful Creamy Almond Bars! Their subtle almond flavor is wonderfully reminiscent of that long ago kringle...and a million times easier to make at home. "A lady at my church made these for snacks for the VBS leaders last summer and I fell head-over-heels for them!" says Heather, of Turlock, CA. "They are amazing! So sweet and creamy, they just melt in your mouth!" Heather even suggests going beyond almond and getting creative with flavors, if you are so inclined. Try using lemon extract or butterscotch flavoring for a wholly different take on these delicious bars.
And speaking of flavor, we simply must discuss Heather Stepniewski's Chewy Chocolate Almond Cookies. Rolled in sugar to form the most delicate crystalline crust, this Nashville, TN cook's almond-infused cookies are truly something to write home about... and they are made without a lick of flour! read full post
