Directions

  1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Unfold 1 pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Roll the pastry sheet into a 12-inch square. Place the pastry sheet onto a baking sheet. Brush the edges with water. Fold over the edges 1/2 inch on all sides, pressing firmly to form a rim. Prick the center of the pastry thoroughly with a fork. Repeat with the remaining pastry sheet.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes, rotating the baking sheets between the top and bottom oven racks halfway through the baking time. Divide the pecans, coconut and chocolate between the pastry crusts. Drizzle half the condensed milk over each.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown, rotating the baking sheets between the top and bottom oven racks halfway through the baking time. Let the pastries cool on the baking sheets on wire racks for 30 minutes. Cut each pastry into 24 bars.

These are really great.. and a twist to the classic 7 layer bar with a graham cracker crust. They do need to be eaten up in a day or two, but these are elegant and rich. I like to toast my coconut slightly in a 325 oven for a few minutes until the coconut begins to turn golden - it brings out a great flavor and crunch. I also use 6 oz of chocolate chips and 6 ounces of butterscotch chips to add an interesting dimension to the dish. Delish!

These are delicious, but I found them a little dry. Next time, I will cut the initial baking time back to 10 minutes, then top and bake for another 10 minutes, and then check for doneness. Nonetheless, they are extremely rich, decadent, and tasty!
