Ingredients

  • 1/2 (15-ounce) package refrigerated piecrusts
  • 2 cups flaked coconut

  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels

  2. Toast coconut at 350° for 5 minutes or until golden brown, stirring twice. Set aside.

  3. Beat butter, sugar, and flour at medium speed with an electric mixer until blended; add eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla, beating well.
