Nobody Doesn't Like Sara Lee

Years ago, my mother-in-law, Kay, made some really delicious and EASY treats during the holiday season.  She always called them "Lady Fingers".  You start with a Sara Lee Pound Cake ... and while it is still FROZEN, you cut the slices into one inch "fingers".  Then make a simple frosting from a box of powdered sugar and some milk.  To that add about 2 Tablespoons of creamy peanut butter (unless you're feeling like a daredevil, then go ahead and use chunky peanut butter).  Mix and then spread the frosting on each lady finger and then roll into shredded coconut.  Place on wire rack and allow the frosting to "harden" to the frozen cake.  You will be AMAZED at how delicious these little coconut bars are and I'm sure they will be come a family favorite!
