    Jenny Sanders's Note:

    An old family favourite! They were sure to show up on the platters of cookies and squares put out by my great-aunts at Christmas, and I always made a bee-line for them. Now I can make them myself. For the pastry, try half a recipe of Marie's French Pie Pastry. (French Pie Pastry)I have made them gluten-free, by using brown rice flour in the pastry, and white rice flour in the topping, which worked out very well.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 pie pastry, to line 9 inch square pan
    • 3/4 cup raspberry jam
    • 1/4 cup butter
    • 2/3 cup sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 2/3 cup rice flour
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 1 cup icing sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
    • 1 little milk


    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 350°F.
    2. 2
      Line a 9" square pan with the pastry. (Not up the sides- just the bottom.) You may wish to line the bottom of the tin with parchment paper first.
    3. 3
      Spread the jam over the pastry.
    4. 4
      Cream the butter and sugar.
    5. 5
      Beat in the eggs and almond extract.
    6. 6
      Mix in the salt and rice flour.
    7. 7
      Scrape the batter over the jam, and spread it out carefully and evenly.
    8. 8
      Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes.
    9. 9
      Let cool.
    10. 10
      Cream the remaining butter, and beat in the icing sugar and almond extract.
    11. 11
      Thin with a little milk until a good spreading consistency is reached; about a tablespoon or so should do it.
    12. 12
      Spread the icing over the squares, then cut them and remove them from the pan.

      These had a good flavor but were a little bit sweet for me. Next time I think that I'll make them without the icing and they'll be perfect!
