French Vanilla Dream Bars

I’ve signed up on a lot of websites for recipes and coupons and so I get a lot of recipes and coupons.  This website called “Vocal Point” often sends me coupons for free items because they want people to try them and then give feedback so just recently I got a coupon for a free bottle of coffee creamer but because we don’t drink coffee I wasn’t sure what to do with it but then I remembered this recipe that uses Coffee Mate so I figured I could substitute the free International Delights Coffee House Inspirations Breve Creme for the Coffee Mate.  The recipe calls for French Vanilla flavor but I bought Vanilla Caramel Cream flavor and used that instead.  These are really good but beware, really sweet!  (I think the recipe actually came from a Coffee Mate advertisement.)

crust:

1/2 cup butter, softened

1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 1/4 cups flour

filling:

3 eggs

3/4 french vanilla coffee mate

1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar

3 tablespoons flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup coconut

1 cup nuts (I used almonds)

icing:

2 cups powdered sugar

3 tablespoons melted butter

3 – 4 tablespoons vanilla coffee mate

1  Preheat oven to 350.  Grease 9 x 13″ pan.

2 For crust, cream butter and brown sugar.  Add flour.  (The dough will be crumbly.)  Press into pan and bake 10 minutes.  Cool 5 minutes.

3  For filling, beat eggs, coffee mate, sugar, flour and salt.  Stir in coconut and nuts.  Spread over crust and bake 25 minutes.  Cool.

4  For icing, combine powdered sugar, butter and coffee mate with whisk.  Spread over filling.
