Apricot Jam Coconut Squares
Makes 15Total time: 60 mins
introduced over time; this one I got from my sister who said she got it from my mothers cookery book, which was transcribed from my gran's et cetera.... En passant, my mother had "friend" who would generally alter or leave out one or more ingredient from her recipes, claiming they were family secrets. One of her tricks was to substitute Orley wip for fresh cream, so the skulduggery did not always last too long. Cést la vie!
thats the same one....lol one extra ingredient 1 tsp vanilla....a great recipe.
Must try these thanks
Did you use raspberry jam?
I used Blackcurrant jam with blackcurrant bits through the jam, but you can just use your favourite jam. But they are so lovely, I have a soft spot for coconut. Here is the link http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/raspberry-jam-coconut-slice/93504c61-43a9-4692-b57b-eb95171bff24 The method is dead easy, whizz up in processor and just pressing the dough into the pan, no rolling. You get quite a few in a batch depending on how big you cut them...lol. I just tried out that link, didnt take me straight to the page, but took me to taste.com to browse so put in coconut slice and got it, so copied the link there which did take me straight to the right page try this link
