My Grandmother Addie made these bars for family picnics and enjoyed watching her grandchildren try to resist them. But all it took was just one bite...then one bar didn't seem to satisfy. They disappeared in a flash.—Mary Nickerson, Ellington, Connecticut


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1/3 cup seedless raspberry jam
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 2 cups sweetened shredded coconut


  1. In a large bowl, combine flour and baking powder. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine egg and milk; stir into crumb mixture just until moistened.
  2. Press into a greased 9-in. square baking pan. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
  3. Spread jam over crust. Combine topping ingredients; spoon over jam. Bake 25 minutes longer or until light golden brown. Cut into squares while warm.
