Cranberry Coconut Bars

I guess this is Bar Cookie Week! LOL I love bar cookies because you can cut them into small bite size pieces for dessert bars and tiny bite munching! These are so yummy and chewy! Cinnamon is good but if you want to switch it up try Pumpkin Pie Spice or cardamom! Once again you can switch up the dried fruit! xo


1 C Flour
2 t Cinnamon, or other interesting spice!
1/2 t Baking Soda
1 t Salt
1 C Butter, at room temperature
1 C Brown Sugar
2 Egg
1 C Dried Cranberries
3 C Sweetened Shredded Coconut

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl, cream butter, eggs and sugar until smooth. Add flour mixture and blend. Stir in coconut and dried fruit until thoroughly mixed. Spread evenly into an ungreased 9 x 13 x 2 inch baking pan. Bake until cookies are firm to the touch, about 20 minutes. Place on a rack to cool, cut when completely cool.
