Almond Bars

These were a big hit at the Historical League December meeting/party. Thanks to Sharon Johnson for sharing this great recipe. Many League members requested it.

Almond Bars
Crust: Use 2 packages of crescent rolls
Spread one package on a 9x 13 cookie sheet or pan

Filling: mix together
1- 8 ounce package cream cheese
1 cup sugar
1 egg yolk- save the white
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 tsp. almond extract
Spread over the crescent rolls

Spread out 2nd package of rolls, lay over filling and blend edges together
Glaze with the egg white

: Sprinkle with a few tablespoons of sugar and small package of sliced almonds

Bake 350 degrees for 30 minutes

Note: Sharon just heard the crescent rolls now come in large sheets which would also work.
