Are you looking for a simple and killer-delicious dessert that comes together in just minutes? These Coconut Cherry Pie Squares are so easy to make and so luscious to eat that it almost feels wrong! The secret is having the perfect combination of butter, sugar, and organic All-Purpose Flour to allow the coconut to hold together. It's coconut harmony...buttery, luscious, cherry shortbread coconut harmony.
We love the combination of cherry and coconut, but this recipe also works with blueberry, raspberry, or lemon pie filling. Always allow the bars to cool completely before cutting, even if the intoxicating smell of buttery coconut goodness seems like too much to bear.
