Dream bars

The desire to make this was very strong earlier today... one of the reasons maybe the favourite ingredient that goes into making these...pure white daintily piled up mound of sweetened snowflake coconut sitting pretty on my kitchen counter as a part of my gingerbread house snow scape OR that I badly want to make another use of my tart pan to justify myself for wanting a second pan that I'm eyeing at the William Sonoma.

Who except me cares what my reasons are to bake these, as long as these taste 'yum'. With the Christmas season here & many goodies to make & share, this comes im handy as well as adds to the beauty of my platters.
