Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, cream butter, sugar and salt until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in extracts. Gradually add flour. Spread three cups dough into a greased 15x10x1-in baking pan. Spread with pie filling. Drop remaining dough by teaspoonfuls over filling. Bake 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely.

Glaze: In a small bowl, mix confectioners' sugar, extracts and enough milk to reach desired consistency; drizzle over top.
