Caramel-Coconut Squares

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. 

So here is the recipe:

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

Meanwhile, combine:

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.
