Lemon Coconut Squares

This is the original recipes:


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
3/4 cup cold butter or margarine
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup flaked coconut

In a bowl, combine flour and confectioners’ sugar; cut in the butter until crumbly. Press onto the bottom of a lightly greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, lemon juice and baking powder until well mixed. Pour over crust; sprinkle coconut evenly over the top. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars.




However I added about a 1/2 teaspoon of lemon zest to the egg mixture. Also I made a glaze for it

Juice of one lemon

zest of one lemon

1 Tbs butter/margerine

Powdered Sugar

I did not measure the powdered sugar I used but add enough for a good drizzle consistency. This make a wonderful tart sweet glaze.
