Really simple recipe that can be embellished with your favorite ingredients such as chocolate chips or shredded coconut. Did a similar version except used store-bought sugar cookies to use as the crust. Substitute your favorite jam, jelly or preserve to make it your own!

These are so easy to make and really good! Since I didn't have any lilikoi jelly I took your advice and "made it my own" with some homemade recipe #3714. The consistency of the cookie is somewhere between a pan cookie and a bar dessert, with a light (almost fluffy) bottom crust. The pecans added a lot of flavor. I can see making this will all sorts of jams, jellies and preserves in the future. Thanks for posting this great recipe!
