About this recipe: These are really tasty squares that are perfect for a tea or even a potluck, always a hit when I make them, and easy to do! Can also be made with pineapple jam instead.
my mom has made these every Christmas for the last 35 years and are one of our family's all-time favorites. The only difference is we use granulated sugar instead of icing sugar in the topping and 2 cups coconut instead of 1 1/2 cups. Make these in a 8x8 (or 9x9) pan tho so they're nice and thick or double the recipe for a 9x13 pan - 23 Dec 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These were absolutely delicious! I used water instead of milk/egg in the crust -- it brings out the saltiness more and tastes great. Also, I used real sugar instead of confectioner's sugar -- yum! - 12 Aug 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
They are really yummy but the crust is too thin when spread in a 9x13 pan. Probably double the crust recipe, makes it easier to spread too. - 20 Sep 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
