1/2 cup
sugar
1/2 cup
hazelnuts or blanched almonds, ground
1 teaspoon
freshly grated lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon
ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon
baking powder
1/4 teaspoon

1/2 cup

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, hazelnuts, lemon zest, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, baking powder, and salt in small bowl. Add butter. Beat at low speed until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add egg and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed and dough forms a ball. Divide dough in half.
  3. Press half of dough into ungreased 8-inch square baking pan. Cover with jam to within 1/2 inch of edge of pan. Roll out other half of dough between two sheets of lightly floured waxed paper to 11x10-inch rectangle. Cut dough into twenty 1/2-inch strips with pizza cutter or sharp knife, starting with 10-inch side. Place strips diagonally over jam to form lattice crust.
  4. Bake 23-28 minutes or until jam is bubbly and edges of crust begin to brown. Cool completely. Dust with powdered sugar and cinnamon. Store refrigerated.
