Oxmoor House

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
3/4 cup cold butter, cut into pieces
2 egg yolks
1 cup seedless raspberry jam
Garnish: powdered sugar

Preparation

Process first 8 ingredients in a food processor until almonds are finely ground. Add butter; pulse 10 times or until crumbly. Add egg yolks; process 15 seconds or until dough forms a ball. Set aside one-third of dough. Press remaining dough in bottom and 1/2" up sides of a lightly greased 11" x 7" baking dish. Spread jam to edges of dough.

Roll out remaining dough to 1/4" thickness. Cut dough into 1/2" wide strips; carefully arrange strips over jam in a lattice design.

Bake at 325° for 37 minutes or until golden. Cool completely on a wire rack; cut into bars. Garnish, if desired.
