Almond Delights Cookie Bar

These almond delights were sweet with a firm but tender crumb. They seriously surprised me how GREAT they are. My dear friend Dorene made these and brought them over for band practice and I knew I had to get the recipe and share with you all!

I’m SO excited to share this sweet treat with you all to help celebrate my new blogging BFF’s birthday party! I met Kimmie from Bake, Love, Give at Eat, Write, Retreat last month and I immediately clicked with her and her conference roommate and partner in crime, Susan from A Less Processed Life.

It’s always nice to find your “tribe” at a conference, especially when you are there alone. It can be intimidating being in a crowd of people that you don’t know very well, so conference buddies are always such a huge bonus. It makes conferencing a lot more fun, in my opinion – and I can’t wait to meet up with them again at a future gathering!

I mean – once you see me do a non-ironic version of “Shake It Off” at live-band karaoke, we’re pretty much bonded for life. So happy happy birthday to you, Kimmie! I hope you enjoy your margs and fajitas, and I wish I could be there with you to celebrate in person! I’m sure we’ll make up for it the next time that we’re conferencing though. 😉
