1 1/2  Cups  Flour, (Plus 2 Tbsp.)
2/3  Cup  Sugar
1/3  Cup  Brown Sugar
1/2  Teaspoon  Baking Powder
1/2  Teaspoon  Salt
1/2  Teaspoon  Cinnamon
1  Stick  Unsalted Butter
1/2  Cup  Toasted Almonds, ground
1    Egg, slightly beaten
    Raspberry Jam
1    Egg Yolk, mixed with
1  Teaspoon  Water

Combine 1 1/2 cups of the flour, the sugars, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Slice the butter into small pieces and cut into dry ingredients until the mixture is crumbly. Add the ground almonds and stir well, then add the egg and stir until the dough hold together. Remove 1/2 cup, and into it stir the remaining 2 tablespoons flour, then chill for about 30 minutes. Press the remaining mixture evenly over the bottom of an 8" square baking pan. Spread the raspberry jam over the bottom crust. Preheat oven to 350. Roll out the reserved chilled dough into a rectangle about 8 inches long and 6 inches wide, then cut lengthwise into 10 strips, each about 1/2 inch wide. Spread half the strips over the jam and place the other half crosswise over them. Brush the strips with the egg yolk-water mixture. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the top is a deep golden brown.
