Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Let dough stand at room temperature 5-10 minutes to soften. Press into an ungreased 13×9-in. baking pan. Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Spread preserves over crust. Sprinkle with 3/4 cup almonds. In a large bowl, beat egg whites on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, on high until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved.
  • Spread meringue evenly over almonds. Sprinkle with remaining almonds. Bake 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack. Store in the refrigerator.
