This recipe is for those that claim to dislike coconut. It’s also for anyone that really loves coconut. Basically…
This recipe is for everyone.
These bars are rich, gooey, buttery… dreamy. And, they’re easy to make, done in under an hour.
8 TBS Butter (one stick)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 TEA salt
2 cups brown sugar
1 TBS flour
1/4 TEA baking powder
2 large eggs
1 cup shredded coconut (toasted or untoasted, your choice)
1 cup walnuts
Bake the bottom layer:
Preheat oven to 300°.
Lightly grease 9 x 13 inch pan.
Cream butter and brown sugar until fluffy, stir in flour and salt. Mixture will be crumbly.
Pat into bottom of prepared pan.
Bake for 10 minutes and remove from oven to add top layer.
Increase temp to 325°.
While bottom layer is baking, prep the top layer:
Combine brown sugar, flour and baking powder.
Mix in eggs till smooth.
Add coconut and walnuts.
Dollop coconut mixture on top of pre-baked cookie layer, spread evenly.
Bake for an additional 30 minutes.
Cool. Dust with powdered sugar if desired.
I like to cut these in 2-inch squares, because they’re rich, and also because it’s easier to two or three 🙂
