READY IN: 45mins
YIELD: 24 bars




  • Preheat oven to 300F.
  • Cookie Layer: In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until smooth.
  • Stir in flour and salt.
  • Mixture will be crumbly.
  • Pat the mixture into a lightly greased 9x13 pan.
  • Bake for 10 mins, while you prepare the topping.
  • Increase the oven temperature to 325F.
  • Topping: Combine sugar, flour and baking powder in a medium mixing bowl (I've used the same bowl without ill result).
  • Stir in the eggs, mixing until smooth.
  • Add coconut and nuts, mix until well-combined.
  • Spread the topping onto the cookie layer, as evenly as possible (wet your fingers and spread).
  • Bake the bars for 30 mins, until golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and let them cool (in the pan).
  • Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar, if desired.
  • Or spread melted chocolate chips over the bars.
  • Cut them into 2 1/4 inch bars when completely cooled.
