Directions

GETTING READY
1) Preheat oven to temperature of 350 degrees.

MAKING
2) Follow the instructions on the package to make the pie mix.
3) On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to a rectangle of about 12x8-inches.
4) Roll the dough loosely around the rolling pin and then unroll it over an 11 1/2x7 ½-inch foil biscuit pan.
5) Press the dough over the base of the pan and up the sides very gently and then trim off the surplus, if any. Place in the refrigerator to chill.
6) Beat the egg whites in a spotless clean, dry bowl till they stand in stiff peaks.
7) With the help of a large metal spoon, fold the ground almonds, sugar and almond extract into the prepared meringue.
8) Over the dough base, spread the preserves and then cover with the stiff almond mixture very carefully.
9) Over the top, scatter the slivered almonds.
10) Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, till the top is golden in color.
11) Let the preparation cool for about 30 minutes and then cut it into 16 slices.
12) With a spatula, remove the bars from the pan and let them cool on a wire rack.

SERVING
13) Place the bars on a serving platter and sift a little confectioners-€™ sugar over them. Serve the Almond Bars as and when preferred. These make a delectable snack as well as dessert when served with a dollop of ice cream.
