Raspberry Almond Christmas Bars
Makes about 2 dozen bars.

1 envelope pie crust mix
1/4 cup raspberry jam
1/2 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
2/3 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 red and green food coloring
1 frosting:
2 Tbsp butter, softened
1 1/2 to 2 cups sifted icing sugar
2 Tbsp cream or milk
1 tsp almond extract

Prepare pastry mix according to package directions for one crust
unbaked pie shell. Line an 8" square 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. Color half pink and half green. Put
small spoonfuls of each mixture alternately on jam layer. Tap pan
gently on counter to even out the batter. Bake in a 350 F oven for
35-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean.
Cool completely. Beat frosting ingredients together until smooth
and creamy, adding enough icing sugar to make a spreading consistency.
Spread over cooled squares.
