1 cup All-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon milk
1/2 raspberry jam
1 cup light brown sugar
2 tablespoon flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup coconut
1 1/2 cups icing sugar
1 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
1 to 2 tablespoons cream
Combine flour and baking powder. Cut in shortening until mixture is crumbly. Beat egg and milk together. Add to flour mixture. Mix well.
Press firmly into greased 9 inch square cake pan. Spread jam evenly over crust.
Beat eggs and brown sugar in small bowl on medium speed of electric mixer until thick and stiff, about 4 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients. Spread over jam.
