1/2 cup butter or margarine -- at room temperature
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 cup flour -- plus 1 tbsp.
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1 cup flaked or shredded coconut
6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips

Preparation / Directions:

1. Cream butter and 1/2 cup of the brown sugar until smooth. Add 1 cup of the flour and combine until mixture forms coarse crumbs. Press dough into an 8- or 9-inch square glass baking dish. 2. Microwave on 100% power 3 to 5 minutes, rotating dish if necessary for even doneness. Crust should lose all moist spots and look like a cooked pie shell (it will not brown). 3. Combine eggs, vanilla, nuts, coconut, chocolate chips, remaining flour, and remaining brown sugar. 4. Spread mixture over crust. Microwave on 100% power 4 to 5 minutes, until set, rotating dish if necessary for even doneness. 5. Cool on wire rack, then cut into squares. Makes 16 squares. Note: You can substitute butterscotch chips for the chocolate, or use a combination of both.
