  • 1 12 - 2
  • 2
    tablespoons cream or 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1
    teaspoon almond extract


  • Prepare pie dough for one crust unbaked shell. Line an 8-inch square ungreased cake pan with pastry.
  • Spread with raspberry jam.
  • Cream butter and sugar together thoroughly. Add eggs, beating until light and fluffy. Add flour and salt; blend well.
  • Divide batter in half. Colour half pink and half green.
  • First spread green layer, doing your best not to spread the jam onto the green batter. Once green is covering all of the jam, repeat with pink layer.
  • Bake at 350°F for 30-40 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely then frost.
  • Frosting:
  • Beat frosting ingredients together until smooth and creamy, adding enough icing sugar to make a spreading consistency. Spread over cooled bars.
  • Let set and then cut into bars.
