Raspberry Meringue Squares

These squares are too good to not share - I must have made them years ago because there was a check mark on the recipe, it wouldn't have been a regular because neither one of my children ate jam and I guess they still don't!  This recipe comes from Company's Coming - 150 Delicious Squares.  These squares are every bit as good as the Raspberry Coconut Swirl Cookies I made back in January - I'll definitely be making them again - they're easy and they're good.  I'm linking this recipe with Weekend Potluck at the Country Cook and Open House Party

Raspberry Meringue

Bottom layer:

1 1/2 cups flour

2 tsp. baking powder

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup butter or margarine

2 egg yolks.

Crumble all 5 ingredients together.  Press into ungreased 9 x 9 pan.  Set aside.


1 cup raspberry jam or red jam of your choice, I used my homemade raspberry jam.

Begin by dropping small blobs of jam here and there over the bottom layer.  Then carefully spread.

Top Layer:

2 egg whites

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

1 cup regular coconut

Beat egg whites until frothy.  Add sugar and beat until stiff.  Fold in coconut.  Spread over jam layer.  Bake in 350 oven for 35-40 minutes.  Keep covererd.
