Cherry Coconut Pecan Pie

Today I made Cherry Coconut Pecan Pie (aka Chewy Cherry Bars)!

This recipe is from Cooking Pleasures Magazine, December/January 06. Instead of making cookie bars, I poured the batter into a store-bought pie shell, and omitted the icing.

2 eggs, 1C brown sugar, lightly packed, 1/2t vanilla, 2T flour,
1t baking powder, 1C coconut, 1C (one 16-oz jar) maraschino cherries, drained and coarsely chopped, 1/2C pecans

Preheat oven to 350F.
