A puff pastry crust is a delicious way to add a sophisticated twist to a kid-favorite. Serve this cookie recipe at your next party, because this version will be loved by adults and kids alike! Made with chocolate chips and coconut flakes, you're going to be in heaven.


  • 1 (17.3-ounces) package of Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets, thawed
  • 1 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1 (12-ounces) bag of semi-sweet chocolate pieces (about 2 cups)
  • 1 can (14-ounces) sweetened condensed milk


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. Unfold 1 pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Roll the pastry sheet into a 12-inch square.

  3. Place the pastry sheet onto a baking sheet. Brush the edges with water.

  4. Fold over the edges 1/2 inch on all sides, pressing firmly to form a rim. Prick the center of the pastry thoroughly with a fork. Repeat with the remaining pastry sheet.

  5. Bake for 15 minutes, rotating the baking sheets between the top and bottom oven racks halfway through the baking time.

  6. Divide the pecans, coconut and chocolate between the pastry crusts. Drizzle half the condensed milk over each.

  7. Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown, rotating the baking sheets between the top and bottom oven racks halfway through the baking time.

  8. Let the pastries cool on the baking sheets on wire racks for 30 minutes. Cut each pastry into 24 bars.

I love this recipe although I would have to substitute something else for the pecans since my daughter is allergic. I was thinking that pieces of dried fruit like apple bits or peaches might taste really well. We could use peanuts or sunflower seeds too. Do you think coconut would taste good?
