I don't know why I'm obsessing over fall desserts, but this looks like a great combination of flavors. Not your usual bar cookie! Ingredients: 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed FILLING: 2 eggs 1/2 cup packed brown sugar 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/3 cup all-purpose flour 1/4 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger 2 medium pears, peeled and diced 1/2 cup flaked coconut Directions: In a small bowl, combine the flour and sugar. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press into a greased 9-in. square baking pan. Bake at 350° for 25-28 minutes or until golden brown. In a small bowl, beat the eggs, brown sugar and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and ginger; stir into egg mixture just until moistened. Gently stir in pears and coconut. Spread over warm crust. Bake 20-23 minutes longer or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars. Yield: 16 bars. Recipe and photo from tasteofhome.com
