These were wonderful!
I'm so glad I tried this recipe......they're like little pecan pie bars...my husband loved them!
Very quick and easy....thanks!
Back in the fifties when I grew up, dream bars were an actual fad. My mom was a professional baker and made the best dream bars ever. Unfortunately, I don't have her recipe and my mouth was watering when I found this one. However, it was a huge disappointment. It is nothing like the original which were chewy and not so terribly sweet and sticky. I believe this recipe has too much sugar and not enough flour. The base has so much sugar that it gets too hard. The other ingredients are probably about right. I would like to see someone come up with one of the more satisfactory old recipes. I'm sorry to have to call this one a flop.
These bars turned out just fine....but the flavor was lacking - non-descriptively just "sweet". Next time, I'll add some sort of "chips" - choc, pb, or cinnamin perhaps.
We made them in my culinary arts class at my high school and they turned out awesome! dont eat too much though... tummy ache! Just remember that the crust doesnt have to be set to put the filling on. These also make great with freezing for snacks later...
A big hit with family and friends!
This was excellent!! Very Very rich, eat in small amounts.
These are awesome. Making another batch today.
WOW! These are amazing! Very rich dessert! If you love coconut then you will love these! They are nice and chewy. I made these last night & they turned out perfect. I was looking for something different to make & these really hit the spot, I will be making these again soon. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. :)
