    Shortbread crust, layer of raspberry preserves, and a coconut macaroon-like topping--:) My grandmother bakes these every time she comes to visit us--my husband inhales them!

      These were great. I doubled the recipe, and took them to my church's annual Baptism picnic. They were loved by all. The only changes were that I used black-current & raspberry jam, and added a little almond extract to the topping mixture. Thanks JamesDean's Girl!
