Three Layer Slice

I've had a song stuck in my head all week, a country tune by Tim McGraw called "My Next 30 Years". Today, i stepped into the next 30 years. So, i booked the day off work, and did what i wanted. I baked, went on a couple shopping trips, bought something i have been wanting for a long time, and just have been having fun! It was also a gorgeous day, the warmest we have had this year; so i popped the windows and aired the house out!! Today's baking is for another wedding shower and another recipe from the square book my Mom gave me for Christmas.

Three Layer Slice.

Layer One

2 cups all purpose flour.
1/2 cup butter or hard margarine, softened.
3 Tbsp granulated sugar.
1/2 tsp salt.

Mix all 4 ingredients in medium bowl until crumbly. Press into ungreased 9 X 13 inch pan. Bake in 350 F oven for ten minutes.

Layer Two

3 Large egg yolks.
1 cup brown sugar, packed.
1 cup raisins or currents.
3/4 cup all purpose flour.
1/2 cup milk.
1/4 cup r hard margarine, softened.
1 Tbsp baking powder.
1 tsp vanilla extract.

Combine all ingredients in medium bowl. Pour over first layer. Bake 20 to 15 minutes or until set.

Layer Three

3 egg whites.
1 cup brown sugar, packed.
1 cup medium unsweetened coconut.
1 tsp vanilla extract.

Combine all ingredients in small bowl. Spread evenly over second layer. Bake about 15 minutes until golden. Let stand in pan on wire rack until completely cooled. Cuts into 58 squares.

The bottom two layers are a bit bland, but the top is delicious! Coco-nutty goodness :-) I had a bit of issues with  the middle layer, it was really brown on the edges but still uncooked in the middle. After cutting it, i ended up tossing a few squares from the center. I also had a hard time cutting it, they fell apart. I cut them large, i think they would crush if i tried making them any smaller. This is good, but not great, probably not one i would make again. It depends on how the ladies like it Sunday, i guess.

Another shower, another recipe, and the wedding is only two weeks away!! But almost everything is ready, here's to new futures, and the next 30 years!
