Coconut Angel Squares Recipe

Coconut Angel Squares Recipe

I have so many speedy dessert recipes, but this one is truly special. A friend shared it with me, and it immediately became the one I prefer because it tastes like a coconut cream pie with only a fraction of the work. -Betty Claycomb, Alverton, Pennsylvania
