These are some of the best lemon bars.
The crust is the bomb.
It's got that shortbread texture and taste which
compliments the lemon filling perfectly.
One of my favorites for sure, and always a huge hit with everyone.
Lemon Coconut Bars
1/2 cup coconut
Powered sugar for dusting, if desired
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
Cool, then dust with sugar if using.
