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.

It was pretty good. It only needs a quarter cup of butter in the bottom layer, I poured butter off of it when I took it out of the oven. I also used apricot jam instead of raspberry

I was quite disappointed by this recipe. The dough should have less butter and more sugar or other flavoring. I agree with the other reviewers who said that the end result did not look very good, and that the cut bars did not retain their shape well.
