Almond Bars

1 package white cake mix
1/2 cup butter or margarine -- softened
2 eggs
Almond Topping -- (recipe follows)


2/3 cup sliced almonds
2/3 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon milk

Heat oven to 350ยบ. Beat cake mix (dry), butter and eggs with electric
mixer on low speed until dough forms or mix with a spoon. Press in
bottom of ungreased jelly roll pan, 15 1/2 × 10 1/2 × 1 inch. Bake 20
to 25 minutes or until golden brown and crust begins to pull away from
sides of pan or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Immediately spread Topping over crust. Set oven control to broil. Place
pan on middle rack in oven. Broil 2 to 3 minutes or until Topping is
golden brown and bubbly (watch carefully-Topping burns easily). Cool
completely. Cut into 8 rows by 4 rows.


Cook all ingredients in 2-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring
constantly, until sugar is dissolved and mixture thickens slightly.
