Coconut Macaroon Bars

Dear Elizabeth,
I used to buy a "coconut macaroon bar" at my local bakery. It had a shortbread crust and a sweet coconut topping with a thin layer of chocolate. Almost like a "Mounds" candy bar turned into a cookie. Obviously, I don't have the recipe. Do you think you could come up with a gluten-free version?

Dear Kelly,
My reaction to your letter was "Yum!" Coconut Macaroon bars sounded so good! I understand why you'd want a recipe for them. While developing the recipe, I kept having trouble with the crust. Then I decided to bake the crust first, and then add the topping. This was key. The result was a nice crisp shortbread crust with a gooey coconut topping. I've added these bars to my current list of favorite desserts. Thanks for the request!
