I doubled the recipe so we could eat some and give the rest away, and I've done so in this recipe as well. If you don't finish them all, your neighbors will appreciate the leftovers.
crust:1 c. butter
1 c. brown sugar
2 c. sifted flour
2 c. brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
2 c. chopped walnuts (but I use roasted almonds)
1 c. shredded coconut tossed in scant 1/4 c. flour (which I also roast)
a large pinch of salt
Cream butter. Gradually add brown sugar and beat 'til smooth. Stir in sifted flour and spread batter into 2 8/8 pans lined with parchment. Bake at 375F for 17-20 min.
Beat eggs and brown sugar 'til smooth. stir in vanilla, almonds, coconut, and salt. Spread mixture over baked crust and bake for 20 min.
