Dream Bars!

Yannis and I used to love going to Monasteraki when we lived in Athens.  We would go with friends and family and enjoy all the commotion of Plaka. We would usually take long walks, look in the art galleries and tourist shops and would always eat kebab and then go and find the man with the fresh coconut stand.  We would take a fresh coconut stick on hand and buy a few more for the train ride home.  Now when I miss the outings and the coconut treats, I make a pan of dream bars... much easier and quicker than trying to find the coconut man!!
