These went over pretty well at our house. One member doesn't like coconut but managed to "choke" down 3 cookies (back to back). I don't know if my coconut was old or what, but felt these were just a tad dry. Will try again with fresher coconut. Recipe was easy to follow and what's not to love about bar cookies? Made for PAC Fall 2008.
