Ingredients
  • 1½ cups butter, softened
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 cup almonds, chopped, toasted*
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup red raspberry preserves
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Spray a 13 x 9-inch pan with no-stick cooking spray. Combine butter and sugar in large bowl; beat until light and fluffy. Add egg yolks; beat well.
  2. Combine flour, almonds and salt in small bowl; mix well. Add to butter mixture; stir until dry ingredients are moistened. With lightly floured fingers or back of spoon, press half of dough in bottom of prepared pan to form crust.
  3. Spread preserves evenly over crust. Drop remaining dough by spoonfuls over preserves (dough will not completely cover preserves).

To toast almonds: Place almonds in dry nonstick skillet over medium heat, shaking pan until nuts are lightly browned
