Oven temp-180 degrees C
Combine flour & sugar.
Add butter, mix until combined.
Press evenly into base of a pan lined with baking paper.
Bake for 15 - 20 mins or until golden brown.
Set aside to cool for 10 mins then spread the jam over warm base.
Put eggs & vanilla in a bowl, beat with fork until combined.
Stir in the coconut & sugar.
Spoon the coconut over the jam, pressing down slightly.
