3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup oil
1 Tablespoon milk
1 to 2 teaspoons almond extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon colored sugar crystals
Heat oven to 375 F. In a large bowl, beat 3/4 cup sugar, butter, oil, milk, almond extract, and egg until light and fluffy.
Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off. Stir in flour, baking powder, and salt; blend well.
Spread evenly in an ungreased 15x10x1-inch baking pan; sprinkle with 1 Tablespoon sugar crystals.
Bake at 375 F for 10 to 12 minutes or until light golden brown. Watch carefully -- they burn quickly. Cool 5 minutes; cut into bars.
