Another thing...I kind of feel like throwing a fit (is that allowed at 25?). McKinley broke my camera! I just bought it this summer. It was my own fault for letting her play with it. It was just a point and shoot camera, but it was a relatively nice point and shoot. Oh well, what's done is done. I just don't feel like buying a third camera this year!
Onto the good stuff (with the terrible cell phone picture)....Almond Roca Cookie Bars!
My mom would make these around Christmas time and they were my favorite holiday treat. The best part is they are easy to make! I hope you like them.
Almond Roca Cookie Bars
1 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. white sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 beaten egg yolk
2 c. flour
1 tsp. vanilla extract
crushed almonds or walnuts
Cream together butter and sugars, mix everything else in but chocolate chips and nuts. Press onto a greased cookie sheet (it will be a very thin layer and the dough consistency will be similar to play dough). Bake at 350 degrees for 14-18 minutes or until golden. Pull out of the oven and while it's still semi hot sprinkle on chocolate chips, it doesn't take that much (maybe 1/2 a bag). As the chips melt spread them with a rubber spatula. Sprinkle on nuts. Let cool and cut into bars. Enjoy!
Since I am busy and camera-less I think I am going to have to say Merry Christmas already! I hope it's a good one for you. See you after the holiday!
