A little spring for your soul.
My mother made these…with a recipe from her sister waaaay up in Canada
They truly are lemon bars…but go ahead
use key limes…or plain limes
you have my complete permission.
But. Do. Not. Skip. The. Coconut.
1 1/2 cups of flour
1/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter
Crumble with hands and press into a 9X9 pan
Bake at 350 20 minutes
Mix 2 slightly beaten eggs
3TBSP of lemon juice…or more if you like things tart
1 C. sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 Cup of coconut
1/4 tsp salt
pour over baked crust…pop back in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes….
If ya wanna be all pretty and all…sprinkle it with icing sugar…kinda like a teensy icing sugar snowfall.
Oh Heavens to Betsy as my Canadian born Mom is known to say say
These are coconutty lemony heaven.
