Ingredients

Crust

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1/4 cup sugar

Topping

1 (7-ounce) tube almond paste

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup cold Land O Lakes® Butter, cut into pieces

1 (10- to 12-ounce) jar (1 cup) orange marmalade or strawberry spreadable fruit preserves

1/2 cup sliced almonds

Glaze

2/3 cup powdered sugar

1 to 2 tablespoons milk

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine all crust ingredients in bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press crumb mixture onto bottom of ungreased 13x9-inch baking pan. Bake 14-16 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.

  3. STEP 3

    Crumble almond paste into same bowl. Stir in 1/2 cup flour and 1/4 cup sugar. Cut in 1/4 cup butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; set aside. Spoon orange marmalade evenly over hot, partially baked crust. Sprinkle almond paste mixture over marmalade. Sprinkle with sliced almonds. Bake 20-25 minutes or until topping is golden brown. Cool completely.

  4. STEP 4

    Place powdered sugar in bowl. Stir in enough milk for desired glazing consistency. Drizzle over cooled bars.

Tip #1

Almond paste is made from finely ground sweet almonds and sugar. It can be purchased in tubes or cans in the baking aisle of your grocery store. Often it will be located near the canned pie fillings.
