These are so good!! I love coconut and shortbread so this is an amazing combo! I made 1/2 the recipe since I only have 1 tart pan and cut them into slices like a pizza. I ended up cooking it for an extra 5 minutes on a cookie sheet and they turned out golden and crispy. Will be making these again, I cannot stop eating them! Made for 123Hits.
- 4 cups sweetened flaked coconut
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 9 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
