      These are so very easy to make. Perfect for this busy time of year. I baked them in a glass pan, so lowered the temperature to 325*. It took an additional 15 minutes to set completely, but that's not a problem. I did find them a tad on the sweet side, so next time I'll cut them into smaller squares. Thanks Elly for the wonderful recipe.

      Excellent square. Dates, oranges and coconut make for squares I really enjoy - and what makes it really special - there are not all that many recipes using that combination - which makes for popular on the serving tray. Don't be waiting to make this one for Christmas - it's good any time! Thank you Elly.

      These were great! I followed another reviewer's suggestion and cut back about a third on the sugar and they turned out wonderfully.
