1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
3/4 cup rolled oats (not quick-cooking)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (6 oz.)
1 cup walnut pieces, toasted
1/2 cup raisins (or dried cherries or dried cranberries)
1 can (14 oz.) condensed milk
2 cups sweetened shredded coconut (7 oz.)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with parchment paper, leaving overhang on the short sides; lightly coat paper with cooking spray. In a food processor, pulse together butter, confectioners' sugar, flour, and salt until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add oats and pulse until just combined. Press dough evenly into bottom of dish and bake until lightly browned and firm, about 20 minutes.

Let cool completely in dish on a wire rack before cutting into 18 squares. Store in an airtight container at room temperature, up to 3 days.)
