These cookies are super yummy. They look and taste similar to pecan pie bars, except with coconut!

2 eggs, beaten

1 c. light brown sugar

1 c. pecans, cut fine

1 tsp. vanilla

1 1/2 c. dry coconut

1/4 tsp. salt

3 T. flour


Cream the butter, add 1/2 c. light brown sugar and blend thoroughly. Add flour, mix and spread in 8x8-inch baking pan. Bake in 375-degree oven for 10 minutes. 

Beat eggs lightly and add all remaining ingredients, mix thoroughly. Then pour this mixture over mixture which has been baked. Replace in oven and bake 20-22 minutes longer. When cooled slightly, cut in small squares for serving.
