Raspberry Apricot Coconut Square
4 egg yolks
1 cup butter (cold and diced)
1/2 cup sugar

3/4 cup apricot jam
3/4 cup raspberry jam
4 egg whites
3/4 cup sugar

Then add 4 egg yolks.
Process again until you get a ball of dough.
Press the dough into 13×11 baking pan with parchment paper.
Bake for 15 min.
Take out of the oven and cool for about 15 minutes.
Then spread 3/4 cup of apricot jam and 3/4 cup raspberry over the baked yellow base.
Beat 4 egg whites at medium speed for about 1 min.

Add coconut and vanilla instant pudding and mix for only few seconds using spatula.
Be gentle when mixing. (The white mixture will lose some of its volume but it is OK.)
Spread the white magic over the jam layer, return to oven and bake from 20 to 25 minutes. (until golden)
Cool it. Cut into triangles or any shape you want to.
