Caramely Almond Butter Bars

Serves Makes one 8x8 inch pan, serves 16     adjust servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup salted butter (2 sticks), softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract*
  • 2 cups flour, spooned and leveled
  • 1 12-ounce package Rolos, unwrapped

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350. Line an 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper. (Or use foil and spray with nonstick. Or spray the pan itself.)
  2. In a large bowl or stand mixer, beat together the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the egg, salt, and almond extract and beat well, scraping down the sides.
  4. Add the flour and beat until not quite incorporated.
  5. Add the rolos. I mixed them in for a couple seconds with the beater, but you can fold them in with a wooden spoon if you want. (Some of the rolos in my batch were broken and some were left whole) Don't over mix.
  6. Press into the prepared square pan.
  7. Bake at 350 for about 22-24 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown. They will look soft in the middle but a toothpick should come out clean.
  8. Cut into small squares and serve with lots of milk!
