These are pretty darn good! Nor a huge fan of coconut in baked goods normally but I had some leftover from a birthday cake I made for my mother. These taste like almond joy in cookie form. They needed to bake a little longer because they were still "wet" in the middle. I did have some trouble getting them out of the pan, but only a little. Tasty morsels!

These bars are excellent! I agree that the bars need to bake for an additional 5 minutes over the suggested baking time. I can't wait to make them again.

Really good chocolate chip cookie bar, but mine had to bake for 30-35 minutes. They were still doughy in the middle at 25 minutes. Great served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
