almond fingers recipe needed!!!

Hi there - my son has a passion for almond fingers (a la Mr Kiplings/Tesco's own and any good baker/patisseries' own) so we thought we'd make our own but NOONE seems to do a recipe - Nigella Lawson does a bakewell slice (with jam - yum) but uses a shortcake base which is a big no-no for my son - am just trying to get hold of a good classic version with (pref) or without jam - HELP!!

Almond Fingers

Base and Topping:
1 cup semolina
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 cup butter
2 eggs, beaten
2 tsp almond extract

Filling:
1 cup jam (or more, depending on your taste)

Preheat the oven to 350 F.

Base and Topping: Sift together all of the dry ingredients. Rub in butter. Add the almond extract with beaten eggs and stir thoroughly. (The batter will be very soft.) Spoon half of the mixture into greased pan (9 x 13 inches) and smooth out.

Spread the base with the jam.
Spoon the second half of the mixture on top.

Bake at 350 F for 20 to 30 minutes, or until golden. Let cool in the pan, on a rack, then slice into fingers.

Venus - didn't realise I don't have weight conversion info for the "cups" you give in the recipe - could you tell me what they stand for in weight??
Thanks again!

Squink, I had a look here

But it would be easier for you if you just use a cup... any cup would do.
Cup measures here in Australia are 250ml.
