Yield: 20 Bars
|⅓ cup||Shortening; soft|
|⅓ cup||Brown sugar, firmly packed|
|¾ cup||Sifted all-purpose flour|
|¾ cup||Quaker Oats, uncooked (quick or old-fashioned)|
|1 cup||Brown sugar, firmly packed|
|1 tablespoon||All-purpose flour|
|1 tablespoon||Lemon juice|
|1||Lemon; grated peel only|
|1 cup||Shredded coconut|
|½ cup||Chopped pecans|
For base, beat shortening and sugar together until creamy. Sift together flour, soda and salt. Add to creamed mixture; blend well.
Stir in oats. (This mixture will be very dry and crumbly.) Pat into a greased 11 x 7-inch baking pan. For topping, beat eggs slightly. Blend in remaining ingredients.
Pour over base. Bake in preheated moderate oven (350 F.) about 30 minutes. Cool; cut in bars.
