DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Crust: Using a stand or hand mixer, cream together the 3/4 cup butter and 3/4 cup brown sugar until smooth. Add the flour and mix well.
  • Place the mixture in a parchment-lined 13X9X2 inch baking pan, pressing the mixture firmly onto the base of the pan to form a packed, even layer.
  • Bake the crust until lightly golden, about 20 to 25 minutes. Set aside until cool.
  • Filling: in a large bowl, mix the brown sugar, vanilla and eggs well; set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Combine the flour mixture with the egg mixture until thoroughly incorporated. Stir in the coconut and pecan pieces.
  • Pour the filling over the cooled crust, spreading evenly with a spatula. Bake until set, about 40 to 50 minutes. Cool before cutting and serving.
