Pink Ladies

I thought I would start off with a photo because these squares are just so divine!  I made these recently when I got together with a bunch of the gang to scrapbook for a few hours. This was just the fuel we needed and a favourite sweet. Sometimes these are called Lori's  Neapolitan squares and I used the recipe from Company's Coming- Squares.
They happen to have a Club Pack of coconut at Costco these days. I think it might be time to stock up.

Pink Ladies

1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup all-purpose flour

2 cups, medium grind coconut
300 mL sweetened condensed milk

Buttercream frosting, dyed pink of course

Bottom: Combine first 4 ingredients. Press into 9 x 9 pan with greased sides.Bake at 350F for 10 min.

Middle: In clean bowl, combine coconut with condensed milk. Spread over bottom layer. Bake for an additional 20 minutes or until a light tinge of brown. Allow to cool before frosting.

Icing: 2 cups icing sugar
4 Tbsp. butter, soft
Maraschino cherry juice or red food colouring

Give them a whirl. VERY tasty.
