If you like butter tarts, you'll love these squares! My Mom always makes these at Christmas, but they're good any time of the year.

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (195 degrees C). Grease a 9x9 inch baking pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, brown sugar, and white sugar. Cut in the 1/2 cup of butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Pat into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  3. In the same bowl, stir together the eggs and brown sugar, stir in the coconut and walnuts until everything is gooey. Spread evenly over the crust layer, and bake for 25 to 35 minutes, everything should be golden brown.

I just made these and they are great! They remind me of pecan pie YUM. I took the advice of some and cut down the brown sugar but I think I will follow the recipe exact next time (we like rich desserts). I found the best way to do the crust was cut up the cold butter then mix it up with my hands. For those who say it was a gooey mess then I think they just didn't bake it long enough. They should come out of the pan just like a bar cookie. I will definately make these over the holidays.


These came out WAY too sweet and WAY too mushy. I was very disapointed and definitely will not make this recipe again.


I haven't made the Yum Yums yet but I am sure it is one that I have been looking for for years. I will get back and tell you. Bye for now Sorry I didn't get back sooner but these were the Yums Yums I was looking for. My husband is so happy. His mo used to make them and no one in the family could find the recipe. Thankyou Dorothy
