I'd never made anything quite like this, and I thought it turned out pretty nicely. I did find that the bars held together well. It wasn't a very picture-perfect presentation, but the taste was very good.
I made this recipe almost to spec, with a couple of minor notes: I used *seedless* red raspberry jam, and while making the recipe I thought that a jam with seeds might have been better, with more texture and mouthfeel (I like jam like that), but with the final result, it didn't really matter to me after all. Second, I used extra large eggs, so my batch was a little bit eggier than normal. Lastly, I used "fancy flake sweetened coconut", and I would've preferred to have had unsweetened shredded coconut on hand.
That said, this was a tasty dish, which took me a week to consume. I didn't think I'd like the raspberry/coconut combination that much, but it was better than I expected. One last thing: A previous reviewer thought there was "too little dough". I might agree that it would be better to have a little more dough in this recipe.
