I found a vintage recipe card among my mother-in-law's collection of recipe cards I had to try. It is the Caramel-Coconut squares. This is very similar to the After School bars. These bars have a cookie base instead of a graham cracker base.
Make the cookie base:
1/2 cup soft butter
1/2 cup sifted powder sugar
1 cup flour.
Cream the butter and sugar, and add in the flour. Put in an ungreased 9-inch square pan and bake at 350 degree F for 12-15 minutes
14 ounce can of sweetened condense milk
1 cup of butterscotch pieces
1 1/3 cups of coconut
1 teaspoon of vanilla,
Once the cookie layer is baked, add the sweetened condensed milk mixture, and bake for 25-30 minutes more. The outer edges will be golden brown, The bars will set once cool.
I thought of adding chocolate chips, you easily could along with some nuts. I feel there can be some versatility to the recipe.
