     1. 325 oven. Grease a 9x12 cake pan. Cream together sugar and butter.
   Add the egg and almond extract and beat until the mix is light and fluffy.
   Gradually stir in the flour and the almonds, forming a stiff dough.
     2. Divide the dough in half; wrap one half in plastic wrap and chill.
   Press the remaining dough into the bottom of the pan in an even layer.
   Spread the preserves in an even layer on the dough, keeping it 1/4 from
   the sides of the pan. Roll out the chilled dough half between 2 sheets of
   wax paper to a 9 x 12 rectangle and press this dough into the pan. 3. Bake
   until golden brown, about 1 hour. Place pan on a wire rack and cut the
   shortbread into 1 x 1 1/2 bars, leaving them in the pan to cool
   completely. Remove to tightly covered containers and store in a cool place.
