Editing to say that I used two eggs, since the coconut/nut mixture seemed too stiff--worked very well.

super tasty! I will make them again but next time I will double the topping because it was very thin. It had a fantastic flavor I served it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.thanks

very nice dessert. i am very poor at baking and nothing ever comes out but even though i probably botched this recipe they were still very good. i followed recipe but i think i over melted the butter before creaming and that made the base, or crust of the squares too buttery. the coconut layer was excellent and next time i will double that part of it to make that layer higher. thanks for sharing the delish recipe.
