This dessert is a taste topper! It makes up quickly and brings rave reviews.

3/4 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
2 cups flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1-1/3 cups shredded coconut
1/2 cups walnuts
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

How to Make Fruit Preserves Bars

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add egg; mix well. In a separate bowl, combine flour and baking powder. Gradually add to butter/sugar mixture.

Add coconut, walnuts, and vanilla; mix thoroughly.

Press two-thirds of the dough into a greased 13″x9″ pan.

Spread with preserves; crumble the remaining dough over the preserves. Note: dough will have a cookie dough-like consistency so it won’t crumble.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.

Cool pan on wire rack.

Cut into squares.

Yields: 36 bars
