Sweet Meats [clearer] Unverified!

Occasionally the collection of cards includes +1 cards, some I think may have gotten mis-filed and copied. This is nearly identical to the other sweet meats recipe though contains more? differently specified? butter/shortening/margarine. Its hard to say whether there's really a half-cup difference or its shortening vs. butter + margarine. The construction instructions here are a bit more clear in suggesting a crust.



  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup margarine
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup flour


  • 2 eggs, beaten until fluffy
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1 1/2 cup coconut
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped nuts


Blend crust ingredients bake 20 minutes at 325F in a buttered 9x13" pan.

Pour egg mixture over baked crust. Bake 25 minutes more at 325F. Cool. Cut into squares.
