Made these yesterday and they were super yummy. For all you coconut addicts like me out there they are pretty easy to make.
3/4 c. powdered sugar
3/4 c. shortening (half margarine or butter softened)
1 1/2 c. flour ( all purpose or whole wheat)
1 c. packed brown sugar
2 TBS flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 c. chopped walnuts
1/2 c. flaked coconut
heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix powdered sugar and shortening. Stir in 1 1/2 c. flour. Press into un-greased 13 x 9 x2 pan. Bake until golden brown, about 12-15 minutes.
Mix remaining ingredients.Spread over baked layer and bake for 20 minutes. Cool. Frost with Orange frosting (see below) if desired. Cut into bars about 3 x 1 inches.
