Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 17x12x1-inch baking pan.
BARS: In a large bowl, cream together butter, sugar and salt until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla and almond extracts. Gradually add flour one cup at a time, until combined.
Spread 3 cups of dough onto the prepared baking pan. Spread with pie filling. Drop remaining dough by teaspoonfuls all over filling.
Bake 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack.
GLAZE: In a small bowl, whisk together confectioners’ sugar, extracts and enough milk to reach desired consistency. Drizzle glaze over the entire pan and top with almonds if desired; using a plastic knife, cut into 24 bars.
