Ingredients:  
2 cups all-purpose flour
cup granulated sugar
Pinch of salt
1 cup butter, cold
1 cup red raspberry preserves
1 cups firmly packed brown sugar
3 large eggs
teaspoon vanilla
cup flaked coconut
1 cups chopped walnuts
4 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Pinch of salt

Directions:
Directions:
1.Place oven rack in center of oven; heat to 350 degrees.
2.To prepare crust, mix the 2 cups flour, the granulated sugar and a pinch of salt in medium bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Lightly knead mixture in bowl until butter is evenly incorporated. Pat dough in even layer in ungreased 15 x 10 x 1-inch jelly-roll pan. (I used a 9 x 13 pan.)
3.Bake until crust is light brown, 15 to 18 minutes. Transfer pan to wire rack; cool crust slightly, about 15 minutes. Spread preserves evenly over warm crust.
4.Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees.
5.To prepare topping, beat brown sugar, eggs and vanilla in large mixer bowl at high speed, until very light and fluffy, 2 to 4 minutes. Add walnuts, coconut, the 4 tablespoons flour, the baking powder and a pinch of salt. Stir with rubber spatula until evenly incorporated. Spread batter evenly over preserves on crust.
6.Bake until top is brown and center is firm to the touch, about 35 minutes. (I had to bake for an additional 10 minutes for it to set.) Transfer pan to wire rack. Let cool about 25 minutes. Cut warm cookies with sharp thin-bladed knife into 2-inch squares. Transfer squares with metal spatula from pan to wire rack. Let cool completely to room temperature. Squares can be cut diagonally in half to make triangles, if desired.

I couldn't stop eating these when I first tasted them. You can even serve this like a cobbler and top with ice cream or whipped cream.
