Vintage Recipe: Creamy 4-Layer Coconut Dessert

I'm digging into old recipe boxes and rediscovering the family favorites hidden inside! You'll find carefully handwritten recipe cards, newspapers and magazines clippings and even some hastily scrawled directions on scraps of paper, all from years (and years) ago! They're all getting scanned and transcribed so you can enjoy them in your own home kitchen. 

This layered Coconut Dessert has 4 layers of creamy, dreamy summertime goodness - there is a nutty crust, followed by a whipped cream cheese layer, then a smooth coconut pudding layer and topped off with Cool Whip and toasted coconut! It would make a wonderful treat for summer gatherings!


This recipe for Coconut Dessert was handwritten on both sides of an index card. It was found in an old large recipe file box. The age of the recipe card is unknown.

This Lemon Delight Cake starts with a boxed cake mix but adds in tons of lemon flavor. It is topped by a lemon icing glaze (made with the juice and zest of 2 lemons) that is drizzled all over the top.
