Ingredients

Crust

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar

Filling

4 eggs
3/4 cup light corn syrup
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup amaretto liqueur*
2 tablespoons LAND O LAKES® Butter, melted
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 cups (about 7 ounces) sliced almonds
1 (12-ounce) package (2 cups) semi-sweet real chocolate chips, reserve 1/3 cup ( We recommend NESTLÈ® TOLL HOUSE® Morsels)

Drizzle

1/3 cup reserved semi-sweet real chocolate chips (We recommend NESTLÈ® TOLL HOUSE® Morsels)

Directions

Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 13x9-inch baking pan. Set aside.

Combine flour, 1 cup butter and brown sugar in large mixer bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Press dough into prepared pan. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Beat sugar, corn syrup, liqueur, eggs, 2 tablespoons butter and cornstarch in medium bowl with wire whisk. Stir in almonds and 1 2/3 cups morsels. Pour over hot, partially baked crust; spread evenly. Continue baking for 25 to 30 minutes or until center is set. Cool completely.

Place reserved 1/3 cup chocolate morsels in heavy-duty resealable plastic food bag. Microwave on HIGH until morsels begin to melt (30 to 45 seconds); knead. Continue microwaving, kneading every 10 to 20 seconds, until smooth (1 to 2 minutes). Cut tiny corner from bag; squeeze to drizzle chocolate over bars. Refrigerate to firm chocolate before cutting into bars.

*Substitute 1/2 teaspoon almond extract.
