Coconut Squares

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by ReeLani

This yummy-sounding recipe came from the back of a sugar package. I think this combination will compliment the delicate flavor of the macadamia nuts very nicely.

I changed some things like using stone ground whole wheat flour (no sifting) instead of the regular all-purpose kind and adding 2 tsp of rum with the vanilla extract. I loved the texture, the crispy top where the coconut browned and chewy center. It was a bit too sweet for me, so next time I will lessen the sugar. My DBF with a sweet tooth loved it!
