Matt Stairs: Cherry Coconut Squares
As soon as the holiday season starts, I ask my father-in-law, Bill, to make these for me. They are so good, he gets requests from the whole family.
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup melted butter
1 tsp sugar
1 can Eagle Brand Milk
1/2 lb fine coconut (1 pkg)
1 small bottle of red cherries, cut up fine
1 tsp vanilla
Mix graham cracker crumbs, melted butter and sugar put into an 8x8 pan. Bake 10 minutes in 350 degree oven. In another bowl, mix milk, coconut, cherries and vanilla. Put on top of the first mixture and bake 20 minutes. Cover with white frosting when cool.
