Cream the shortening, salt, 1/4 cup sugar until fluffy. Add the almond flavoring, egg yolks, flour, mix well. Press into a 9x13 inch pan and bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes. Spread hot crust with raspberry preserves and top with coconut. Beat the egg whites until foamy, add the 1/2 cup sugar and beat until peaks form. Spread over coconut, bake 25 minutes. Cool completely before cutting. Makes approx, 24 bars.
