"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

* Crust:
* 1 cup matzah cake meal
* 1/2 cup matzah meal
* 1 cup packed brown sugar
* 1/4 cup ground toasted pecans
* 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
* 1 large egg white
* Cooking spray

* 1 1/3 cups packed brown sugar
* 1/2 cup maple syrup
* 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
* 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
* 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
* 1/8 teaspoon salt
* 5 large egg whites
* 1 large egg
* 1/3 cup flaked sweetened coconut
* 2 tablespoons finely chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350.

To prepare the crust, lightly spoon matzah cake meal and matzah meal into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine matzah cake meal, matzah meal, and next 4 ingredients (matzah cake meal through 1/4 teaspoon salt), stirring with a whisk; cut in 6 tablespoons butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add 1 egg white, stirring just until moist; press into bottom of a 13 x 9-inch baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until edges begin to brown; cool 15 minutes.

To prepare the filling, combine 1 1/3 cups brown sugar and next 7 ingredients (brown sugar through 1 large egg) in medium bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Stir in coconut and pecans. Pour over the prepared crust. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until set. Cool to room temperature. Cover and chill at least 1 hour. Cut into bars.
