    JamesDean'sGirl's Note:

    I got this recipe from my sister-in-law. I usually make these around Christmas, but sometimes, when that unique coconut flavor comes craving, I indulge and make these buttery bars. My sister-in-law uses untoasted coconut, but my family prefers it toasted.

      I am sorry but these did not have the flaky shortbread that I expected. I thought 2 2/3 cup coconut seemed like a lot so I weighed out 7 oz and it came to just over 2 cups so I went with that. They came out quite hard and I only baked them for 20 min. I won't make them again.
