3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
4 large Land O Lakes® Eggs
3/4 cup light corn syrup
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup amaretto liqueur

1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 cups sliced almonds
1 (12-ounce) package (2 cups) semi-sweet chocolate chips, reserve 1/3 cup

Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 13x9-inch baking pan. Set aside.
Press dough into prepared pan. Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
Combine flour, 1 cup butter and brown sugar in large mixer bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
