Refrigerate pastry 1 hour.

Spread jam over entire surface.
Position oven rack in lower 1/3 of oven.
Preheat oven to 350F [175C].

Combine all filling ingredients except extract and baking powder in heavy 2 quart [2 liter] pan.
Place over very low heat and stir in extract and baking powder.

Cool in pan on rack.

When cool, cut into 2 inch [5 cm] squares, then cut each one diagonally.
