Southern Living


3/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 cup sliced almonds


Line bottom and sides of a 10-inch ovenproof skillet with heavy-duty aluminum foil, allowing edges to overhang 2 to 3 inches; press overhang against outside of skillet. Set aside.

Beat first 6 ingredients at medium speed with an electric mixer until blended. Press into prepared skillet; sprinkle with almonds and additional sugar.

Bake at 350° for 35 minutes or until lightly browned; cool in pan on wire rack. Remove from skillet, and peel off foil.

Cut with a 1 1/4-inch round cutter; place in mini paper muffin liners. (Reserve trimmings for snacks.)
