Butter Coconut Bars

Gray and I both love all things coconut so when I saw this recipe right before our anniversary I had to make them as a surprise! They were excellent. This recipe is from Cookies and Cups.

2 cups flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter (melted)

3 eggs
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup butter (melted)
4 cups sweetened flaked coconut (divided)

Heat oven to 350. Line a 9x13 pan with aluminum foil and grease the foil.  In a large bowl combine the flour, brown sugar and melted butter. Press into the bottom of the pan. Bake for 15 minutes then remove from oven. Reduce the heat to 325.  In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, vanilla extract, sweetened condensed milk, brown sugar, flour and butter until smooth. Stir in 3 cups of the coconut then carefully spread over the crust.  Sprinkle the remaining coconut over the top of the filling. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool before cutting.
