Forget about a white Christmas – From our home to yours, a Merry Christmas!
Our gift to you is another look into the old family recipe box – Dream Bars! We have no idea how old this recipe is or what its origin was, but it’s older than either of us. It’s a nice bar cookie with a crust that is almost a brown sugar shortbread. So yummy, it’s more than worth your time in the kitchen. Roll up your sleeves, it’s time to start Dream-ing.
1/2 Cup Butter cut into small pieces
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Cup Flour
Mix until crumbly (A pastry blender works well or you can pulse the mixture in our food processor)
Pat into a greased and floured 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes.
While the above bakes make the topping.
2 Eggs, beaten
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
2 Tablespoons Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1 1/2 Cup Coconut Flakes
1 Cup chopped nuts (Pecans work well)
Mix these together in the order given. Gently spread onto the baked crust.
Bake another 20 minutes at 350 degrees F. Let cool before attempting to cut these out of the pan.
