Lemon bars are a family favorite for a super easy dessert! I started adding coconut a few years ago and it really brings the bars up a notch! They also freeze very well: I cut them into squares and freeze in small freezer bags. Easy to pop out for company. Don’t substitute the fresh lemon juice for the best flavor.
Here’s the Recipe!
First Things First: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
½ cup powdered sugar
2 cups flour
2 soft sticks of butter
½ cup coconut
Combine powdered sugar & flour. Cut into two soft sticks of butter. Add coconut and mix gently. Place all ingredients into a 9×13 pans and mix and press down well to form a crust.
Bake 25 minutes
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups sugar
½ cup fresh (always use fresh) lemon juice
½ teaspoon baking powder
Beat all ingredients. Pour over baked crust and return to oven and bake an additional 25-30 minutes. Top with powdered sugar while warm. Cool & cut into bars.
Looks nice to serve in small white paper cups, especially if transporting
