  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a 9x13 inch baking pan with greased aluminum foil.
  2. To make the Crust: In a large bowl, mix together the butter, almond paste, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in one egg and the almond extract. Mix in the flour and stir until well blended.
  3. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden. Cool slightly, and spread the raspberry preserves over the crust.
  4. In a large glass or metal bowl, whip egg whites until they form soft peaks. Gradually beat in 1/2 cup sugar until peaks become stiff. Spread the meringue over the jam and sprinkle with coconut.
  5. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until firm. Let cool on wire racks. Lift foil from pan and cut bars with a sharp knife.

This was simple and so good, I had to freeze the extra to stop everyone from eating to much. Even from the freeze the taste as great. This recipe will be kept and used for Holidays.

Great recipe- all my friends absolutely loved them! They're fall apart pretty easily if you're not careful when you cut them up, but they taste delicious!

I'm ashamed to admit that I overmixed the egg whites so they were watery (I just bought a powerful stand mixer that I;m learning to use). No problem! I just added a little more coconut. The swee...
