Reviews for Coconut Pecan Blondies
"everyone loved 'em"
"At first I thought the blondies were undercooked because I followed the recipe saying the inserted toothpick should have moist crumbs on it, however, when cooled, these blondies were not overly moist and were a big hit"
"Wow these are delicious! They have such a nice flavor...the coconut is not overpowering but it really makes this recipe!!!"
"These blondies will melt in your mouth! Good enough to be served in a restaurant!!!"
