First thing this morning, while the coffee was brewing, I was cutting the parchment for these cookies. They’re also known as Hawaiian Dream Bars* in my family, another of my mother’s favorites. I didn’t put butterscotch chips in these, so the coconut is the star.
If you’re wondering why I’ve provided them a gender-defining name, well, it’s because one of my nieces told me that she prefers the “girl versions” of things such as fudge and brownies. Coconut is a nut. You figure it out.
