Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1/2 cup butter, softened
    1/2 cup almond flour plus 2 tablespoons
    1/2 cup flax meal
    1 cup granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda
    1 egg
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    1/2 teaspoon almond extract
    1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

Tips

If you omit the second baking, these would make a nice, tender cake bar.


Directions

In a medium bowl, cream the butter. Add the remaining ingredients and beat just until well combined. Spread in a greased 8x8" baking pan. It's helpful to cover the dough with a sheet of plastic wrap, then gently press on the plastic to spread the dough evenly; peel off the plastic and discard. Bake at 350║ 15-20 minutes until golden brown; cool. Turn out of the pan and cut into 12 "fingers". Place them on a baking sheet and continue baking at 350║ about 5-10 minutes until well-browned, but not burnt. Cool completely.
