  • 1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury Create 'n Bake
          refrigerated sugar cookies
  • 1 cup chopped pistachio nuts
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1-1/2 cups white vanilla baking chips (90z)
  • 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
  • 1/2 cup Key lime juice, fresh lime juice
         or frozen (thawed) limeade concentrate

3. Remove crust from oven. Pour milk mixture evenly over crust. Bake 20 to 25 minutes longer or until filling is set.

4. In small microwavable bowl, place remaining 1/2 cup vanilla baking chips and the oil. Microwave uncovered on High 45 seconds. Stir until smooth; if necessary, microwave an additional 15 seconds. Drizzle over warm bars. Cool at room temperature 1 hour. Refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour. For bars, cut into 6 rows by 6 rows. Store in refrigerator.
