2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup cold butter
3/4 cup slivered almonds
1 (10-oz.) jar lemon curd
3 tablespoons finely chopped crystallized ginger
Garnish: powdered sugar
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°. Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender until crumbly. Toss in almonds; reserve 1 cup flour mixture. Press remaining flour mixture onto bottom of a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch pan.
Bake at 350° for 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Spread lemon curd over crust, leaving a 1/4-inch border. Sprinkle with ginger and reserved flour mixture. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool 1 hour on a wire rack. Garnish, if desired.
These were really good in an unusual way. I'm used to really sweet bars and these have a unique taste. I couldn't find crystallized ginger so I took candied ginger and tossed the pieces in sugar. Everyone really enjoyed them.
