This is a great slice that is easy to make, it is very similar to a butter tart but doesn't have a tart shell.
I'm not even a huge butter tart fan, but these squares are unbelievably good. I followed the recipe exactly (including the optional ingredients) - except I doubled it and used a 9 by 13 pan (did not need to adjust baking time at all). To the reviewer who said their crust was crumbly, the only thing I can think of was that they didn't work the butter in enough with a pastry blender. My crust was perfect. As another reviewer suggested, I refrigerated it first before cutting. I also stored it in the fridge to keep the squares firm. The only negative thing I could possibly say about this recipe is that it's so addictive, it's almost impossible not to overindulge. - 21 Sep 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Pretty good... I had to make a few adjustments though. 1 1/2 cups of brown sugar was too much for me, so I added 1 cup instead. I didn't think the coconut flakes was a good idea but I used it anyways. I was suprised that I couldn't even taste it. I also added in a handful of chopped walnuts. That really helps. - 25 Nov 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Just like a real butter tart!! I love baking, but pastry just is not my thing, so these were perfect! I cut the sugar back by half, added the coconut, raisins & some walnuts, i also used maple flavour instead of vanilla. Big hit with everybody - 23 Aug 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
