2 cups brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup chopped walnuts
In a saucepan, combine butter and brown sugar. Cook over low heat until bubbly, stirring constantly. Cool.
Add eggs to cooled mixture, one at a time, beating well after each. Add vanilla.
Sift together dry ingredients; add with coconut and nuts to brown sugar mixture; mix thoroughly.
Spread in greased 15 1/2" x 10 1/2" x 1" jelly roll pan.* Bake at 350 for 25 minutes or until done. Cut into bars while warm. Remove from pan when almost cool. Makes 3 dozen bars.
*I have always made this in a large oblong pyrex pan, which works just fine.
