Recipe Servings

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar

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

2/3 cup powdered sugar
1 to 2 tablespoons milk

Heat oven to 350°F. 

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. 

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. 

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