Honey Almond Slices

"Please bake this again..." This was what I was told immediately when the last piece of these slices went into a happily-munching mouth.

These slices are so easy to make and very delicious. I was surprised that these slices are so yummy because this recipe is a very plain and simple one which is from the back of a packet of flaked almonds.

Love the layers of crunchy honey almonds...

Here's the recipe from Freshlife (with my modification in blue)

Base

65g butter, melted
1/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
2/3 cup plain flour
1/2 cup almond meal

Almond topping

80g butter
2 tbsp honey
1 cup flaked almonds

Method

Preheat oven to 170°C. Grease and line a 25cm slice pan (I use 20 cm sq pan).

In a large bowl, combine all base ingredients. Press into slice pan and bake for 12 minutes until light brown. Set aside to cool.

Prepare the almond topping by combining the butter and honey in a small saucepan and gently simmer for 3 minutes. Stir through flaked almonds and spread the warm topping evenly over the base.

Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool, slice into squares and serve.

Happy Baking
