    -----Cookie Base-----
3/4  Cup  Unsalted Butter, softened
3/4  Cup  Brown Sugar, Packed
1/4  Teaspoon  Salt
1 1/2  Cups  Flour
1  Cup  Toasted Pecans, chopped
    -----Coconut-Kahlua Topping-----
2    Eggs
2  Teaspoons  Instant Coffee Powder
1/4  Teaspoon  Salt
1/2  Cup  Sugar
1/2  Cup  Brown Sugar, Packed
1/2  Cup  Kahlua
1/3  Cup  Flour
1  Teaspoon  Baking Powder
1  Cup  Coconut Flakes

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9 x 13-inch baking pan. To prepare cookie base: In a large bowl beat butter, brown sugar and salt until light and fluffy. Add flour 1/2 cup at a tie, blending well after each addition. Stir in pecans. Spread evenly over bottom of prepared pan. Bake 12 minutes; remove to a rack. To prepare topping: In a small bowl beat eggs, coffee powder and salt until light. Beating constantly at medium-high speed, add sugars 1/4 cup at a time, beating well after each addition. Increase speed to high; continue beating until mixture is thick and pale and ribbons form in bowl when beaters are lifted, 5-10 minutes. With mixer running at medium speed, gradually add 1/2 cup Kahlua, then flour and baking powder; beat only until combined. Fold in coconut. Pour evenly over partially baked crust. Bake 25 minutes or until top is set and evenly browned. Dust with powdered sugar when cool.
