Dream Bars

When Grandma used to send us a huge box of cookies every Christmas, this one was my favorite kind. She would wrap every cookie individually in plastic wrap, and I’d root through the whole box looking for these…

1/2 C + 1/8 C butter
1/2 C + 1/8 C brown sugar
1-1/4 C flour
Mix to a crumbly mass and cover the bottom of an 8×13 pan.

Bake in moderate oven for 10 minutes.

1 C brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 t vanilla
2 T flour
1/2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
1-1/2 C coconut
1 C chopped nuts
Spread this mixture over the baked flour mixture and return to the oven for 25 minutes. Cut into squares before cooling.
