  3. Crust: In a bowl, whisk together flour, confectioner’s sugar and baking powder until well combined.
  4. Stir in almonds.
  5. Using a pastry blender, fork or your fingers, cut in butter until evenly combined and mixture resembles coarse crumbs and starts to come together.
  6. Using the back of a spoon or your fingers, press crust evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan.

  16. If foil sticks, gently run knife blade between squares and foil to loosen.
  17. Icing: In a small bowl, combine confectioner’s sugar, 1 tablespoon of the cream and the almond extract.
  18. Using a small whisk or a fork, blend until icing is smooth and thin enough to drizzle from a fork.
