Almond Cream Cheese Shortbread Bars

There’s a buttery shortbread crust that’s topped with a cream cheese and almond extract-based filling before frosting the bars and adding slivered almonds. The filling is slightly tangy from the cream cheese and offsets the sweetness of the frosting.


1/2 cup unsalted butter, very soft (1 stick)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt, optional or to taste

4 ounces brick-style cream cheese, softened (lite is okay)
1 large egg
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 to 2 teaspoons almond extract (I used 2)

1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened (half of 1 stick)
1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 to 2 teaspoons almond extract
about 2 tablespoons cream or milk
about 1/4 cup slivered almonds (mine were untoasted)
