Coconut Dreams

I've got another recipe from my granny's recipe box to share with you all today: Coconut Dreams!  Typically, my granny's dessert recipes are not very sweet, but these are an exception to the rule.  They are ooey gooey and deliciously sweet!  I completely forgot to take a picture of them after I cut them, and then, well, we ate them up so quick that by the time I remembered to they were gone :)

You will need:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup coconut
  • 1/2 cup nuts
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Combine the first three ingredients on the list (1 cup flour, 3 tablespoons brown sugar, 1/2 cup butter) and mix well.  Place in a 9x9 pan and bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.  Side note: I have no idea if you are supposed to just put this in a pan or press it into a pan.  I went with press, but who knows!  That's the wonder of Granny recipes :)

While this is baking, beat your three eggs well.  Then, mix in the remaining ingredients.

Pour this mixture over the rest and bake for half an hour.  Let cool, then cut into squares and serve.  Enjoy!
