I just made these and they are great! They remind me of pecan pie YUM. I took the advice of some and cut down the brown sugar but I think I will follow the recipe exact next time (we like rich desserts). I found the best way to do the crust was cut up the cold butter then mix it up with my hands. For those who say it was a gooey mess then I think they just didn't bake it long enough. They should come out of the pan just like a bar cookie. I will definately make these over the holidays.
I haven't made the Yum Yums yet but I am sure it is one that I have been looking for for years. I will get back and tell you. Bye for now Sorry I didn't get back sooner but these were the Yums Yums I was looking for. My husband is so happy. His mo used to make them and no one in the family could find the recipe. Thankyou Dorothy
These did not turn out at all the bottom was dry and crumbly and the top was mushy I could not even get a whole one to come out of the pan I threw them all in the garbage needless to say I won't be trying these again
This was an interesting recipe. The crust was quite moist and the topping was decent. I wasn't expecting this to be as "bready" as it was however it was a nice surprise. I will definitely consider making this again.
No stars if I could. I actually went back and re-read the recipe to make sure I didn't screw it up. These went straight into the garbage. Gross. Way too sweet very mushy (and I cooked mine an extra 15-20 mins!) and the sugar never cooked! It was still crystalized and crunched in your teeth as you ate them!! We didn't even finish our servings. What a waste of lovely ingredients.
Excellent bar recipe when the weather gets cooler and something moist and gooey is needed with you favorite hot beverage. I didn't use the coconut but used 1 cup of chopped pecans. It tastes like pecan pie cookies. My husband said "You can make those again...anytime."
These treats are sweet buttery and chewy. The goodly amount of brown sugar adds to the texture. It's not a cookie that I will bake often because of that boosted sweetness. But as long as they are made for "special occasions" these are treats that will be made for many years to come because they truly are "yum-yummy". I've watched a tray of these disappear in a New York minute!
