Almond Cakes

Mom snagged this from a friend, who in turn snagged it from a 2008 edition of Sunset magazine, who in turn got it from a woman who snagged it from her childhood friend. Sooo we're just gonna call it ours, a'ight?

1⅔ cups flour
1½ cups sugar
1 cup unsalted butter, melted
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons almond extract
¼ teaspoon salt
cooking oil spray
2½ oz. (about ½ cup) sliced almonds

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, butter, eggs, almond extract and salt. Spray two 9" pie pans with cooking oil. Divide batter evenly between pans and sprinkle each with half the sliced almonds. Bake until light brown around edges, about 30 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Makes 16 servings.

You can further jazz these up by layering them with whipped cream and fresh raspberries, if you really wanna.
