1 1/3 cups

Great Recipe 5 stars! Will be making this one again! I used pecans instead of almonds. I lightly sprinkled powder sugar while still warm on the top. Make sure they are cool before cutting as per the recipe. Also, left out the coconut flakes! Not a big fan of coconut. Thank you for sharing:)
Left a super bad aftertaste & looked a little slimey. I was embarassed to serve it to my family. Check out a different recipe!
tart, tasty, tangy! leave out the cooconut!
These a really the perfect lemon squares!! I sub. pecans for the almonds and doubled that amount. I also doubled the coconut. They were great and not too sweet.
this was yummy! i didn't have any almonds so i just made the crust without it. i'm undecided about the crust maybe if i add the almonds it would have been perfect. i'll make this again.
These turned out SO much better than I thought they would! Very lemony, but I made sure to increase the lemon zest to 3 tablespoons. I ended up using the zest from 6 lemons, and the juice from 4 lemons.
I subbed in half a cup of veggie oil, because I was short on butter, and I added an extra tablespoon of both ground pecans (no almonds =/) and flour to the filling/topping, and gave the the topping an extra 5 minutes in the oven because of the "slimy" comment, and they turned out great.
Only caveat here was the crust, it was a tad dry and needed extra time in the oven to brown, but I suspect my pan was too small.
I made these as directed except I didn't add the coconut. Everyone loved the crust and the filling has a great texture. The only thing I didn't care for was the color. Because of the brown sugar they don't have that bright lemon color. A small shake of powdered sugar on the top before serving makes them a little more attractive.
Delicious. Perfect blend of sweet and tart. Easy to make. Had no problems with the filling solidifying. Followed the recipe exactly, except I did not toast the coconut. I'll definitely make again, and again, and again.
