Found another dessert recipe I wanted to try. It's simple to make too.
10 inch cast iron skillet
1 1/2 cups sugar (*****plus 2 TBS)
1 1/2 sticks of Butter, melted
2 large eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp of salt
1 tsp almond extract
1/2 cup sliced almonds with skins (I am going to use 1/3 cup next time...my skillet is an 8')
Preheat the oven to 350. Line a 10 inch cast-iron skillet with foil, and spray the foil with cooking spray.
I a large mixing bowl, stir the sugar with the melted butter. Beat in eggs one at a time and stir well. Sift the flour and salt onto the batter. Stir well. Add the flavoring and stir well. Pour the batter into the foil lined skillet. Top with the almonds and the remaining 2 TBS of sugar. (****)
Bake until slightly browned on top. About 35 minutes. Cool the shortbread in the skillet. When cool, use the foil to remove from the skillet. Remove foil and place on plate...cut into wedges and enjoy.
