Cherry Almond Squares

This square has a nice subtle almond flavor. The recipe calls for Cherry Pie Filling. I usually use Wildberry (Logan doesn't like cherries).


1 cup margarine, softened
3 tsp. almond extract
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
3 cups flour
1 can cherry pie filling (or your favorite)

1 cup icing sugar
1 tsp. almond extract
1 tsp. marg, melted
2 tbsp. warm milk

Cream margarine and almond extract together. Add sugar, beat well. Beat in etts, one at a time. Add flour and mix. Spread 2/3 of dough mixture into a 9x13 inch greased pan. Cover with pie filling. Spread reamining mixture over top of pie filling. Bake at 350F for 30-40 minutes or when top is light brown. Spread with glaze while the cake is hot.

When spreading the dough over the pie filling - I use 2 tsp. and only take a bit at a time.
