Ingredients

    1. 1 cup butter
    2. 1 1/2 cups sugar
    3. 2 1/2 cups sifted flour
    4. 2 teaspoons baking powder
    5. 2 eggs
    6. 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
    7. 3 apples, peeled & sliced very thin
    8. 1/2 teaspoon allspice
    9. 1 cup confectioners' sugar
    10. 3 tablespoons hot water
    11. 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar together.
  3. Mix the flour and baking powder together. Add to butter mixture.
  4. Beat together egss and almond extract. Mix into dough.
  5. In a greased and floured 9x13 pan, press down one half of the dough with your fingers. It will be sticky, so you might want to oil them first.
  6. Mix the apples with the allspice (or you can substitute cinnamon).
  7. Spread the apples over the dough in the pan.
  8. Drop the other half of the dough over the apples and press dough down slightly. It doesn't matter if all the apples aren't covered.
  9. Bake for about 35 minutes, or until lightly browned. Let cool.
  10. Mix confectioner's sugar, water & vanilla to make a thin icing.
  11. Drizzle icing over cooled cake. Cut into squares to serve.
