almond jam bars

this was adapted from a martha stewart recipe. sorry, no photos!

1 stick butter
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t cardamom
1/4 t baking powder
1/2 c dark brown sugar
1/4 c sugar
1 egg yolk
1 cup sliced almonds
3/4 c peach jam, or jam of your choosing.

whisk together dry ingredients. cream butter and sugars. add egg yolk, scraping down the sides. add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, stir in almonds.

line an 8x8 inch pan with greased/sprayed foil. pat half of the dough into the bottom of the pan, cover with jam, leaving a small jam-less border. crumble the remaining dough on top, and pat into a more solid later. bake at 350, about 30 minutes. when cool, cut into bars.
