Coconut Lemon Bars with Mimi!!!

Posted on

Baking is so much more fun with a friend!  Mimi came with the idea and the lemon juice- the rest is history!

INGREDIENTS:

Crust:

  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 1c. flour
  • 1/4 c. powdered sugar
  • 1/8t. lemon extract
  • 1c. shredded coconut

Lemon topping:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1c. sugar
  • 4 T. lemon juice
  • 1/4 t. lemon extract
  • 3T. flour
  • pinch of salt

DIRECTIONS:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Using a fork, cut butter into flour and powdered sugar.
  • Add extract and blend well.
  • Press into a 9×9 pan.
  • Bake 10 minutes, add coconut over top, bake 10 more minutes.
  • Combine all of the topping ingredients.
  • When crust is done and still hot, pour topping over it and bake an additional 20 minutes.
  • Allow to cool to room temperature, cut and serve!

My thoughts:  I’d never made lemon bars before tonight, so experimenting with these was a little challenging 🙂  They turned out wonderfully, but if you really like the creamy lemony part of bars you might want to double the topping.  Had a fun night with Mimi though- even Casper enjoyed our cooking experiments!
