Chewy Coconut Squares

Today I'm posting a recipe that's been in my family since I was a kid (and that's a long time ago).  It may be older than that; I'm not sure.

These are easy to make and taste great.  Besides that, they have walnuts which are good for you.

Chewy Coconut Squares

          1/2 c. soft butter
          1 1/2 c. brown sugar
          1 1/4 c. flour
          1/4 tsp. salt
          1 tsp. vanilla
          2 eggs
          1 c. chopped walnuts
          3 1/2 oz. flaked coconut (~1 1/3 c.)

          Cream butter and 1/2 c. of the sugar until light.  Add 1 c. of the flour and mix well. 
          Pat into greased 9x13 pan.  Bake in 350 deg. oven for 10 minutes.
          Mix the other 1 c. sugar, 1/4 c. flour, and remaining ingredients. 
          Spread evenly over baked mixture.  Bake 20 minutes. 

       This is how it looks right before putting it in the oven.

       While still warm, cut into about 2 dozen squares (or more if you want the pieces smaller. 
       Cool in pan.

I hope you will try them!
Have a great Wednesday.
