I substituted brown sugar for the white sugar, added 2/3 c of rolled oats (1/3 to the crust, the other with the coconut topping), then substituted applesauce for the evaporated milk, and it turned out wonderfully! I will definitely be making this often, especially in the fall!

The squares had a good taste but they didn't stay firm when picked up. I had to cut them in small squares. Also, I gave it three stars because what do you do with almost a full can of evaporated milk, when this recipe only calls for 1/3 cup?

These squares were delicious! They stayed together well and are even better after sitting for a day. I think they would be perfect if you subbed brown sugar for the white sugar in the coconut/milk/nut mixture.

turned out really delicious, added 1 cup more apples, and sprinkled with a little nutmeg, to give it that little something, for the topping I added 1/3c. nuts, what I really liked, the slices stayed nice and firm even the next day, will definitely make it again. thanks for a great recipe!

I have used this recipe for about 17 years. I got it from an elderly friend who was a wonderful cook and had a fantastic collection of family recipes. She shared many of them with me and this one has become a family favorite.
