    These are quite tasty but I found the 1 1/2 cups of brown sugar in the coconut mixture to be too sweet.I would cut that down to just the 1 cup next time I make these.Also these brown up fairly quickly.Mine were very dark at 20 minutes but not cooked quite through.It was hard to cook the middle all throughout without browning the top too much.

    You lucky kid! I wish I'd had a friend's mom who baked. This is a great recipie. Gooey, chewey, crunchy coconut on shortbread. The topping doesn't make as much goo as pecan pie which is good. I never would have thought of topping shortbread like this. This is a real do again recipie.
