Minnie Carda by Patricia LeClaire


2 c. butter, softened
1 c. sugar
2 egg yolks
1/2 tsp. almond extract
2 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. chopped or ground walnuts
1/2 c. fruit jam or preserves
Confectioners sugar (optional)

Preheat oven to 325
Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in egg yolks and almond extract. Gradually add flour, mixing thoroughly. Stir in nuts.
Spoon half of the batter into a lightly greased 8 inch square pan, spreading batter evenly with the back of a spoon. Spread fruit jam (apple, strawberry, raspberry. blueberry, etc.) evenly over top of batter nearly to the edges, leaving 1/4 inch uncovered near edge of pan. Spread remaining batter over jam and fit it to edges of the pan.
Bake for 50 minutes or until golden. Turn out onto a rack to cool for 5 minutes before cutting into tiny squares or bar shapes while still warm.
If desired, sift a light dusting of confectioners' sugar over tops of each bar or square.
