One summer afternoon, while we were sitting outside watching the kids play, my neighbor Yehudis R. brought out some heavenly coconut bars for us to sample. I love anything made with coconut, and these were especially delicious. I immediately asked her for the recipe, of course, and I present you with a slightly varied version of the original. Yields about 24 bars.
Tips: You can also make diamond shapes, squares, or triangles.
Notes: Dough will resemble coarse crumbs. It needs to be tightly pressed into the pan to form a crust.
Notes: The bars are softer when they first come out of the oven, but they stiffen up as they cool.
