You know how there’s someone who follows the President around with nuclear bomb codes? If I were President I would ask that someone follow me around with a pan of these bars. They would most certainly come in handy to diffuse tension or at least spark a friendly atmosphere. Is it too much to ask that we start all international negotiations with a cookie swap?
The base for these bars are delicately almond-scented shortbread. You press most of it into the pan, but you set a bit aside to crumble over the top later.
