How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line a 9-inch square baking pan with foil, and grease with unsalted butter or nonstick vegetable spray.
  • Crust: In a bowl, whisk together flour, confectioner’s sugar and baking powder until well combined.
  • Stir in almonds.
  • Using a pastry blender, fork or your fingers, cut in butter until evenly combined and mixture resembles coarse crumbs and starts to come together.
  • Using the back of a spoon or your fingers, press crust evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  • Filling: Stir raspberry jam to loosen it. Spread jam evenly over crust.
  • Topping: In a small bowl, whisk together flour and granulated sugar until well blended.
  • Stir in almond extract.
  • Using a fork or your fingers, work in butter until evenly combined and mixture resembles coarse crumbs and starts to come together.
  • Crumble topping over top of jam.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 24 minutes or until lightly golden brown around edges.
  • Let cool completely in baking pan on a wire rack.
  • Using foil extensions, lift cooled squares from pan and place on a cutting board.
  • Fold down edges of foil away from sides.
  • If foil sticks, gently run knife blade between squares and foil to loosen.
  • Icing: In a small bowl, combine confectioner’s sugar, 1 tablespoon of the cream and the almond extract.
  • Using a small whisk or a fork, blend until icing is smooth and thin enough to drizzle from a fork.
  • Add more cream as needed to achieve the right consistency.
  • Drizzle icing over cooled squares.
  • Let stand 20 minutes or until the icing is set.
  • Using a long serrated knife, cut into 11⁄2-inch squares.
  • Makes 36 squares.
  • Tip: Let icing set completely, then store squares between layers of wax paper in a tightly sealed container at room temperature for up to five days.
