Step 1

Preheat oven to 325° F.

Step 2

Line baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

Step 3

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in. Set aside.

Step 4

Beat together butter and sugar until fluffy, about 90 seconds.

Step 5

Add egg and almond extract, and mix until incorporated, scraping down sides when necessary.

Step 6

Gradually add in the flour mixture and beat well.

Step 7

Divide dough into quarters and form each into a 12-inch log.

Step 8

Place two logs 4-5 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheet.

Step 9

Using a rolling pin, flatten log until 3 inches wide (making a 12-inch by 3-inch rectangle. It doesn't have to be perfect.)

Step 10

Brush the two dough rectangles with milk.

Step 11

Sprinkle with almonds and bake 12-14 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Repeat with remaining two logs.

Step 12

While the bars are baking, prepare the icing. Whisk together the powdered sugar, almond extract and 1 tablespoon of milk.

Step 13

Add more milk, 1 tablespoon at a time until you reach a drizzle consistency.

Step 14

While the bars are still warm, cut diagonally into one inch strips and drizzle with icing.
