Serves: 16


1 cup white all-purpose flour

1 cup white granulated sugar

1/2 cup butter, softened (do NOT use margarine)

2 eggs, beaten

1 teaspoon almond extract

1/4 cup slivered almonds, more or less according to taste


1. Preheat oven to 350 F

2. in a large bowl, stir together sugar and flour. Add butter. The mixture will be crumbly.

3. Mix together the eggs and almond flavoring, stir into sugar, flour and butter mixture.

4. Spread evenly in lightly buttered pie pan. Sprinkle slivered almonds on top.

5. Bake at 350F for 25-35 minutes until edges are light golden brown.
