NO chocolate chips...

anywhere in my house!  What am I supposed to make as a treat for the next couple of days.
Hmmm...thinking...going through the cookbook...thinking!
Aha!  I found Tom Thumb Cookies.  I don't know where the name came from but these are AMAZING cookies (my husband ate half the pan in one sitting) and VERY yummy!

 First make your crust and press it out into pan.  Bake at 325 degrees for 7 minutes.

Next...mix together the rest of the ingredients and spread over your crust.  Bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes.

Cut into ooey gooey bars and ENJOY!

Tom Thumb Cookies
1 Cup Shortening
1 tsp Salt
1 Cup Brown Sugar
2 Cups Flour

2 tsp Vanilla
4 Eggs, beaten
2 Cups Brown Sugar
1 tsp Baking Powder
3 Cups Coconut

Cream the first three ingredients together and blend in the flour.  Press into a cookie sheet.  Bake at 325 degrees for 7 minutes.  Mix together the ingredients for the topping while the crust is baking and then spread over top of the crust.  Bake at 325 degrees for another 20 minutes.

Pin It!
