Walnut Shortbread Delights - dairy or pareve

CRUST:
2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup butter or pareve margarine (frozen or very cold)

ICING:
2 cups confectioners sugar
3 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons butter or pareve margarine melted
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon almond extract

FILLING:
2 cups walnuts
1 lb brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350.

Grease a 12X 18 or 10 X 15 inch jelly roll pan.

Combine flour and sugar for crust in food processor fitted with metal blade.

Cut the butter into one tablespoon pieces. Add to dry ingredients in food processor. Process about 15 seconds until well blended.

Pour into jelly roll pan and press crumbs into pan to make a crust. Bake for 12-18 minutes or until crust just begins to brown.

Prepare icing by placing confectioners sugar in food processor fitted with metal blade. Combine milk, melted butter, lemon juice and almond extract. With the food processor running, pour liquid ingredients into processor bowl.

Stop machine, scrape sides and bottom of bowl and process again briefly. Put icing in small bowl and set aside.

Without cleaning food processor bowl, place the walnuts in processor fitted with metal blade. Process to a medium sized chop.

Add remaining ingredients and process to blend well. Spread walnut mixture over baked shortbread crust.

Bake 17 to 20 minutes (The top will be quite brown.)

Allow cookies to cool 15 to 20 minutes.

Pour on icing and spread thin. (If icing forms crust on top before it is used, just stir crust into icing and use.)

Allow cookies to cool before cutting.
