A lady at my church made these for snacks for the VBS leaders last summer and I fell head-over-heels for them! They are amazing! So sweet and creamy, they just melt in your mouth!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Yummy! These bars are little slices of pure delight. We can't wait to make them again... and maybe even try experimenting with lemon or orange flavors in place of the almond!

I love these things. I find them even better after refrigerating them over night. I trid a variation of recipe. Skipped the almond flavoring. In cream cheese section I powered some pecans and added about 1/8 C. Then toppled with chopped pecans. Rich and good too.

Just joined this site. It's the best site ever. I made these bars, shared with neighbors and now I am printing the recipe for everyone. My husband ate them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It's a really keeper. Loved them.

Made these and continue to get rave reviews. I didn't have almond slices on hand, so served them au-natural...so yummy.

just for my taste buds...I made these (lemon version) for our office Christmas Snack Day (going on right now). They are delicious but, I should have used about 1/2 tsp less of the lemon extract. (I doubled my recipe). They are still awesome, though~

I haven't made these in FOREVER! I was given this recipe by a friend at church also - Joanne B - and loved them!!! She called them "Kringle". Whatever name they go by they are delish!
