Prepare shortbread base by combining flour with sugar. Cut in butter/margarine until particles are fine. Press shortbread firmly over bottom of greased 9 inch square baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees about 20 minutes, until edges are very lightly browned. Meanwhile, pare, core, and dice pear to measure 1 1/4 cups. Beat eggs with brown sugar until light. Stir flour, baking powder, salt and ginger together. Stir into egg mixture, along with vanilla. Fold in diced pear and coconut. Spoon over hot baked shortbread layer; spread, level. Return to oven and bake 25 minutes longer until lightly browned. Cool in pan. Cut into bars when cold.
