Cookie Carnival: Black-Bottom Coconut Bars


I can't seem to get ahead these days, even when I'm ahead! I made these cookies for September's Cookie Carnival a couple of weeks ago and just now am finally getting them up. Whether they make it into the roundup or not, these little babies deserve their moment in the spotlight.

Bars with a chewy, roasty-toasty coconut top and a soft chocolately-chewy brownie-like bottom. What a great idea!


What did I love about these cookies? Pretty much everything. Granted, you have to really like coconut, because, well, of course there is a lot of it, but it is really good! I didn't make any changes to the recipe at all, even though several people who rated the recipe on Martha's website mentioned having different problems. I think if you just follow the directions and make sure you are checking your layers for the doneness clues given, and not just going by the time, then you'll be all set (and incidentally, so will your cookies).

My kiddos really loved these bars too - they loved the soft brownie-like bottom the most, but were also equally willing to eat the coconut top part. Thanks to Kate for choosing this recipe for us!
