Why I Love This Recipe

This long time family favorite is in the oven now. Banket Bars are so much easier than Banket (though I hope to make both).

Ingredients You'll Need

2 cups flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup margarine
½ pound almond paste
2 cups sugar
½ teaspoon almond extract/flavoring
2 eggs
½ cup chopped nuts* (see note)


Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Grease 9 x 13 inch pan.

Combine flour and salt. Set aside.

Shred almond paste (or cut into small pieces). Cream margarine and almond paste.

Mix in sugar, flavoring, and eggs. Beat well.

Gradually blend in dry ingredients.

Spread in prepared pan. Sprinkle with nuts.

Bake for 40 minutes. Let cool before cutting.


I use almonds. Shelled. Toasted in the oven. Cool. Chop and sprinkle on top of the bars.
