Discovered the recipe but then tweeked it my own by adding some Real Hawaiian Flair!
Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease a 13x9 in. baking pan.
In a large bowl, combine 2 1/2 c. flour, coconut, brown sugar and baking soda.
Cut 1/2 c. butter and add until mixture is crumbly.
Reserve 1 c. crumb mixture for topping. Press remaining crumb mixture evenly into bottom of prepared pan. Bake for 10 minutes.
In a medium bowl, beat remaining 1/2 c. butter and sugar at medium speed with an electric mixture until creamy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in remaining 1 c. flour.
Stir in pineapple, Nuts, and cherries.
Spread over Baked Layer.
Sprinkle with remaining crumb mixture.
Bake for 25 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted somes out clean.
Add the delicious toasted coconut to the top and allow to cool before cutting into squares.
