Easy Coconut Pecan Squares

I often use a shortbread cookie recipe as a lemon meringue pie crust, but this time I made these coconut pecan squares instead. They turned out quite well, and were much easier to make, because all I had to do was push the crumbled shortbread cookie mixture into the bottom of a 9x13 pan to form the crust.

Martha's Favorite Cookie Contest

I am so excited that out of all the entries in the Martha's Favorite Cookie Contest, she chose our Lotus Blossom Cookies as one of the 10 favorites!

Martha announced the 10 favorite cookies on her show today, and there were some very interesting cookies shown. The favorites will receive an autographed copy of Martha Stewart Cookies. Now I will have an extra copy of her great cookie book.

Martha Stewart's Cookies

Martha Stewart's Cookies recipe book is a great add on to any recipe book collection.

I recently purchased one from Costco and look forward to trying most of the recipes. The first one I tried was for Lime Meltaways. I usually do not like tart desserts, but they were delicious and went well with a lemon meringue pie that I also baked. The meltaways were easy to make and I would definitely make them again.
