The almond extract is my little secret ingredient in this recipe. I like to use almond extract in my baking. Just a little goes a long way and takes a baked treat to another level. It’s not overpowering, it’s just a hint. It gives it that came from a bakery taste if you ask me.


If you don’t have almond extract and don’t use it often, phone a friend a get a little from them, or just add some vanilla if that’s all you have. If you do love baked almond treats then let me introduce you to my Jam Filled Almond Muffins that I think you’ll love too!
