2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar


1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup strawberry preserves
1/4 cup sliced almonds


Heat oven to 350°F.

Combine flour and 1/2 cup sugar in bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in egg yolks until well mixed. Press onto bottom of ungreased 13x9-inch baking pan. Bake 15-20 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.

Beat egg whites and cream of tartar in bowl at high speed 45-60 seconds or until foamy. Continue beating, gradually adding powdered sugar, 1-1 1/2 minutes or until glossy and stiff peaks form.

Spread preserves over hot, partially baked crust. Spread egg white mixture over preserves; sprinkle with almonds. Continue baking 22-27 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely. Cut into bars with sharp, wet knife.
