Coconut Meringue Peach Bars

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I made the coconut apricot bars from Betty Crocker’s Cooky Book.  I didn’t have apricot or pineapple preserves, which the recipe called for, but I did have peach, so I used that.  This recipe is made for a 13×9 pan, but I can tell you the cookie dough will not fit into a pan that size.  I put it in a square cake pan and that worked perfectly.  Ironically, this cookie also has meringue.  I didn’t plan it that way, but I’m finding out that I really like meringue.  This is yummy while it’s still a bit warm but best after it’s cooled.  This is definitely for the sweet tooth, as the preserves and the meringue are sweet.
