Categories: Bars / Christmas / Cookies / Desserts

1    Envelope pie crust mix (they, say robin hood)
1/4  cup  Raspberry jam
1/2  cup  Butter, softened
2/3  cup  Sugar
2    Eggs
2/3  cup  Flour
1/4  teaspoon  Salt
    Red and green food coloring
2  tablespoons  Butter, softened
1 1/2    To 2 cups sifted icing sugar
2  tablespoons  Cream or milk
1  teaspoon  Almond extract

BATTER: 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. Makes about 2 dozen bars.
