I don't remember where I came by this recipe, but I know I've been making it for years. It's very good.

A very slight variation on my recipe, which has the same crust, 1 cup bnrown sugar instead, 1 cup coconut instead, no nuts, no baking soda. I think the nuts are a nice idea. I also add almond extract to the filling mixture and frost. Mine from the Pillsbury cookie cookbook. A pretty,; fancy bar cookie.
