These cookies are really easy to make. They have a superb almond flavor and the perfect cookie texture. Plus, they have the bonus of being topped with sliced almonds and a sweet little glaze. These almond bars do not last long in my house.

Then bake in a 325 degree oven for 12-15 minutes. Take them out, cut them into bars and let them cool a bit. Top them with a glaze made with powdered sugar, milk and almond flavoring.
