Berry Peekaboo Bars
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour*
- 1/4 cup Imperial Sugar Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold, cut into cubes
- 1 cup raspberry jam
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour*

- Spread raspberry jam over cooled crust.
- Beat eggs in a medium bowl. Stir in coconut, baking powder, flour, vanilla, and almond extract. Spread evenly over raspberry jam.
- Bake for 25 to 35 minutes or until the filling is set.
