Coconut Pecan Bars

Another one from Paula's book! (I'll move on next week . . .)
These are Coconut Pecan Bars. Vey rich and extra gooey!

1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
1 cup flour, plus 2 tablespoons
1 stick butter, softened
1 teaspoon oure vanilla extract
2 egga, well beaten
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cup flaked, sweetened coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
1 15-oz tub of Duncan Hines Coconut Pecan frosting

Preheat oven to 325.
For first layer, combine salt, 1/2 cup of the sugar and the 1 cup of the flour in a bowl. Cut butter into flour mixture, using a fork or pastry blender, until it resembles meal. Pat into an 8x2 inch square pan. Bake about 25 minutes or until lightly browned.
While the first layer is baking, blend together in a bowl the remaining 1 cup sugar, vanilla, eggs, the 2 tablespoons flour, baking powder, coconut and pecans.
When the first layer is done, remove from oven and very carefully spread coconut mixture over the crust without disturbing the crust. Return to the oven and continue to bake about 25 minutes or until set. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. Spread coconut pecan frosting over the top, and cut into bars.
Yields about 28 bars.
