I made these for a group of 150 elderly folks tonight at the retirement home I work at. Using other's advice I upped the lemon juice quantity and it was nice and tart. Also I took other's advice and added the coconut just a few minutes prior to it being done, and I threw some frozen berries and almond slivers on top too. The result: buttery, mildly sweet crust, sweet tart lemon curd, and the irresistible taste of toasted coconut. In the case of my squares, the berries lended a juicy touch and you can't go wrong with toasted almonds. They turned out great and the residents LOVED them!
My only complaint is that even though I was cooking for 120 people, I had to use the recipe multiplier to its maximum amount (300 servings), and then double that amount (600 servings!). I had just enough for all the residents with about 5 pieces leftover (125). So unless you want the bars to be wafer thin, make sure you at least double the recipe, if not triple it.
