This is one of Mom's recipes that I put 5 stars next to in my recipe box.

My mother loved to make bar cookies. If there was a cookie bake sale or event at the church, she always took bar cookies of some kind. And that is what she made at home, too.

This is a wonderful chewy coconutty two-layer sensation but I could not find a picture of the exact same recipe so the picture is only similar but the recipe is authentic.

Enjoy!
