Lisa’s Coconut Squares
Here is another Christmas one that is a must in our house over the holidays
What you need is
1 1/4 Cups Graham Cracker Crumbs
1/2 Cup Butter, melted
1/2 Cup Brown sugar, packed
1/3 Cup Flour
2 Cups Medium unsweetened coconut
1 – 11 Oz. Sweetened condensed milk
2 Cups Icing sugar (confectioner’s sugar)
1/4 cup softened Butter
3 tbsp. Maraschino cherry juice
Preheat oven to 350.
Bottom Layer: Combine first 4 ingredients. Press into 9 X 9 – inch greased pan. Bake in 350 degrees F oven for 10 minutes.
For the filling: in a bowl combine coconut with condensed milk. spread over bottom layer. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until a very slight tinge of light brown begins to show on the edges. Allow to cool before frosting.
For the icing: Beat all together, icing sugar, butter, and cherry juice, add a bit more juice if needed to make icing soft enough to spread. Spread over cooled bars. Cover tightly and let stand for at least 6 hours or overnight. Cut into squares
Note: These also freeze very well
