These are some of the "best" lemon bars.
The crust is the bomb. It's got that shortbread texture and taste, and just
compliments the lemon filling perfectly.
I think they're my very favorites and always a huge hit with everyone.
I like to sprinkle some powdered sugar on top to finish them off.

1 cup flour
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp lemon peel
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup coconut
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together flour, butter and powdered sugar and press into a prepared 8x8 baking dish, building up 1/2 inch edge. Bake 20 minutes.
Beat remaining ingredients, except coconut, until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Stir in coconut and spread on hot crust. Bake 20-25 minutes longer, just until no impression remains when lightly touched in center.
Cool and cut.
