    125g Tararua Butter, softened
    3/4 cup Chelsea Caster Sugar or Chelsea Organic Raw Sugar
    2 large egg yolks
    1 3/4 cups Edmonds Standard Grade Flour
    1 1/2 tsp Edmonds Baking Powder

    3 large egg whites
    1/4 cup Chelsea Caster Sugar
    1 cup long thread coconut
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    1/2 cup raspberry jam
    1/4 cup freeze dried raspberries (optional)


    Preheat oven to 170°C bake.
    Grease a 30cm x 20cm slice tin and line with baking paper.

    In a medium-large bowl, cream Tararua Butter and Chelsea Caster Sugar or Chelsea Organic Raw Sugar until light and fluffy.
    Beat in one egg yolk at a time then sift in Edmonds Standard Grade Flour and Edmonds Baking Powder. Mix well until it resembles fine breadcrumbs then press mixture evenly into prepared tin. Bake for 10 minutes then remove from the oven to cool for 5 minutes.
    Increase oven temperature to 180°C bake.

    In a clean bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Add the Chelsea Caster Sugar a little at a time and continue to beat until the mixture is thick and glossy. Gently fold in the 3/4 cup coconut and vanilla. Spread the raspberry jam over the prepared base then spread coconut topping over. Sprinkle with remaining coconut and bake for 10-15 minutes.
    Cool in the tin then remove and cut into squares. Decorate with crushed freeze-dried raspberries before serving, if desired.

I also had to cook it a wee bit longer as topping not quite cooked enough. On top of the jam I sprinkled frozen raspberries crushed into crumbs. Result was delicious and now a new family favourite.

I did try it and it does work, although just one thing I had feedback from family I need more jam and cook it slightly longer. Apart from that it is yummy to eat and I still have some for the kids to eat after their dinner.
