BOB RECIPE: Coconut Squares

I use a lot of coconut flakes.  Friends and friends of my friends just go gaga over my wonderful coconut macaroons.  But I also toast these coconut flakes and use them as garnish or toppings for sapin-sapin (steamed layered multi-colored rice cakes) or biko (another rice cake).  And my hubby just always requests for no-bake coconut pie, so he doesn’t mind running back to the stores to buy packs of coconut flakes.
