Almond Bar Cookies

My mom made these cookies for Christmas many years, and they remind me of Scandinavian festivals from school.

Stir together in mixing bowl:
1.75 C all purpose flour
2 tea baking powder
1/4 tea salt

In standing mixing bowl, beat 1/2 C butter until soft. Add 1 C sugar and beat sugar and butter together until fluffy.

Add 1 egg and 1/2 tea almond extract and stir.

Add flour mixture from above, stir.

Divide dough into 4 rolls on 2 cookie sheets, flatten each to 3-4" wide.

Press sliced almonds into top of bar cookies. Bake for 12-14 minutes at 325F.

Cut on the diagonal into 1.5-2" slices.
