A very nice dessert cookie type snack that young people just love. This recipe goes back many years and has been a family favorite.

Very nice! I prepared the bottom layer in the food processor which worked out very well. Since I did not have any chunky peanut butter, I added a few roasted peanuts to the mix. Otherwise, I made as directed and also sprinkled with a little extra coconut for a wonderful treat! Thanks for another terrific recipe, Uncle Bill!
