“If you like a rich square, this is the perfect recipe!!” - by Heather
Original recipe yields 36 squares
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, brown sugar and butter until crumbly and well blended. Press the mixture into the bottom of an ungreased 9x9 inch baking pan.
- Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until firm and golden. Set aside to cool.
- Pour cold water into a medium saucepan and sprinkle the gelatin over it. Let stand 5 minutes. Stir in the white sugar and salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring to dissolve sugar and gelatin. When the mixture is clear, remove from heat and stir in the confectioners' sugar. Set aside until cool.
- When the mixture has cooled to luke warm, stir in the baking powder, vanilla and almond extracts and any color of food coloring. Beat at high speed with an electric mixer until the mixture can hold a peak. Pour over the shortbread base and cool until the gloss disappears. Cut into 36 squares and enjoy!

"This recipe wasn't at all what I expected, but the kids sure have enjoyed it. The marshmallow on top of shortbread is an odd combination. Both parts taste good, I just wouldn't normally put them tog..." See moreether. I would never choose this recipe to bring to a potluck, but it will stay in my recipe box since my children like it so much. They excitedly call it the "marshmallow cake". :)"
