I lent my cookbook to a friend before I joined the TWD book. She had it for about two weeks. She wrote her notes on Post-its and left them on the pages of the recipes she had baked. On the page with this recipe, the note says, "Perfect. Imade these twice."
This version was without coconut. I truly don't feel that it adds all that much. Plus, I don't like it. This is a simple bar cookie. It comes together very easily. The only trick is the baking time. This batch baked for 25 extra minutes, and the bars were just the way I like them, moist and very chewy. I used cappuccino chips, chocolate chips, and toasted almonds for this batch. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Here's a bit of a close up. The top crust did separate from the rest of the bars a bit. It was a nice contrast to the chewy of the interior.
Here's the whole batch ready to go to a friend's house. They did not last long.
Thank you, Nicole, of Cookies on Friday for letting me re-live this deliciousness.
