Lemon Coconut Bars

Pin It

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.

Lemon Coconut Bars

1 cup flour
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar
2 eggs
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.
