How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line a 9x13 inch baking pan with aluminum foil.
  • Grease lightly.
  • ----------------------------
  • To make the Base:
  • In a large bowl, mix the butter, almond paste, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in one large egg and the almond extract. Mix in the flour until the dough just comes together.
  • Press into prepared pan, bake 20 to 25 minutes, until edges are golden.
  • Remove from oven and cool slightly.
  • Using a spatula, evenly spread the raspberry preserves over the base.
  • In a large glass or metal bowl, whip three egg whites until soft peaks form.
  • Gradually beat in 1/2 cup of granulated sugar until the peaks are stiff and glossy.
  • Lightly spread the meringue over the jam.
  • Sprinkle with coconut.
  • Return the pan to the oven, and bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until meringue is firm and coconut is lightly toasted. Allow to cool in the pan.
  • Carefully lift the foil from the pan.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut into bars
