Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • cup packed brown sugar

  • ¾ cup butter

  • ¾ cup cold water

  • 1 (1 ounce) package unflavored gelatin

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • teaspoon salt

  • ¾ cup confectioners' sugar

  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ½ teaspoon almond extract

  • 1 dash food coloring

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, brown sugar and butter until crumbly and well blended. Press the mixture into the bottom of an ungreased 9x9 inch baking pan.

  2. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until firm and golden. Set aside to cool.

  3. Pour cold water into a medium saucepan and sprinkle the gelatin over it. Let stand 5 minutes. Stir in the white sugar and salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring to dissolve sugar and gelatin. When the mixture is clear, remove from heat and stir in the confectioners' sugar. Set aside until cool.

  4. When the mixture has cooled to luke warm, stir in the baking powder, vanilla and almond extracts and any color of food coloring. Beat at high speed with an electric mixer until the mixture can hold a peak. Pour over the shortbread base and cool until the gloss disappears. Cut into 36 squares and enjoy!
