"I got the idea for these from Derf's wonderful Date Raisin Squares - Microwave recipe#8545. I had an abundance of fresh apriums from my tree to use up, and also thought coconut would be a great addition to the crust. These turned out sooooo Yummy! My oven is broken, but I don't even miss it with these, you can't tell they were made in the microwave. It's the perfect recipe for Summertime!"
