  • Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer. Blend in flour until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Pat dough evenly into the prepared baking pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine shredded coconut, condensed milk, red and green maraschino cherries, walnuts, and raisins in a bowl; spread evenly on top of cooked shortbread.

  • Bake until golden brown, about 35 minutes more. Let cool completely before slicing into bars.

Cook's Note:

Almonds can be used in place of walnuts, if desired.
