Overall, this IS a very yummy treat I will be making over and over again in the future. But I agree that the crust does not hold together well, but I found that by using 1/3 c butter in the crus...

I found that the base did not hold together very well and that it could probably use more butter. The filling was good just by itself.

These are very easy to make and very delicious. For a variety add some cocoa. We had no problem with the crust falling apart. Works well as a double recipe in a 13 x 9 pan as well

The topping on this recipe is great when you use half the sugar and sweetened coconut. As for the bottom crust, is was tasteless and crumbly.

Gooey top on a dry, hard, dryish crust. Despite coconut, vanilla is the predominant flavor. Was well liked by colleagues, but cleaning the pan was horrific. Be sure to grease, or line the pan.
