Frosted Coconut Nutty Graham Squares

Pat Duran


This was one of my Aunt Martha's signature cookie bars she made at Easter and Christmas!
She said she was making this for many years, I first tasted them when I was about 9 or 10, so that would be around 1949-50.These are so good.
Sometimes I add peanut butter to the filling too about 1/4 cup.YUM!
