Blueberry Cookie Bars

Ingredients
 2 ¼ cup flour
1 cup blanched sliced almonds
½ cup sugar
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 ½ stick (6oz) cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
1 cold egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
¾ cup blueberry SVO Spread

1.  Preheat oven to 350*. Line a 9-inch baking pan with a 12-inch-long sheet of foil. Using a food processor, mix the flour, almonds, sugar, baking soda and salt until the nuts are finely ground. Add the butter and pulse until coarse crumbs form. Beat together the egg and vanilla; drizzle over the dough mixture. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and knead with your finger tips until clumpy.
2.  Transfer two-thirds of the dough to the pan and press into the bottom to form an even layer.  Spread the SVO Spread on top. Dot the top with the remaining dough in clumps.
3. Bake until the edges are lightly golden, 35-40 minutes. Let cool completely. Turn out of the pan, remove the foil and cut into squares. Makes 16 Bars.
