Coconut Lemon Bars

I made these tasty bars from an old recipe from one of my mom’s cookbooks because our lemon tree was overgrown with lemons. They came out so tasty that I wanted to share the recipe with you all.



For the crust:

2 sticks butter, softened

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 cups flour

1/8 teaspoon salt

For the filling:

6 extra-large eggs

3 cups granulated sugar

2 tablespoons grated lemon zest

1 cup lemon juice

1 cup flour

Powdered Sugar, for dusting



Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Line a 9×13 pan with foil or parchment, and lightly spray with non-stick cooking spray.

Cream together the butter and sugar. Mix in the flour and salt until dough forms.

Press the dough into the pan, building up 1/2 inch crust on all sides.

Bake the crust for 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Chill.

Whisk together all of the remaining ingredients (except the powdered sugar), and pour into the cooled crust. Bake for 30-35 minutes until filling is set. Let cool to room temperature or chill overnight.

Dust with powdered sugar before cutting and serving.

I changed this recipe a bit by adding the following extra ingredients to the recipe:

another 1/3 cup of flour

1/3 cup raw coconut flakes

1/3 cup chopped macadamia nuts

1 teaspoon of almond extract
