I've misplaced my recipe for coconut squares from the Baker's Square package, which is available at Aldi. Does anyone have the recipe?

Bobbie Harmer of St. Petersburg and Mary Beck of both Largo and Springfield, Ill., share a recipe for coconut squares from the Baker's Square coconut package. This is one of the easiest recipes you'll ever make. When mixed the crust is more like a cookie dough consistency rather than a cake batter, making it easy to press into the pan. The filling mixture is pourable. You can gently maneuver the mixture around the crust with a rubber spatula to make sure it's covered. It smells great while baking and the hard part is waiting for it to cool for a taste. It's more of a brownie like consistency rather than cake.
Largo resident David Steele would like the recipe for the Olive Garden appetizer shrimp scampi fritta.
