  1. 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.

I liked the idea of these bars, but I kept tasting a bad "eggy" flavor in them. I like eggs a lot, but occaisonally when desserts call for too many of them, I can taste them in a negative way. H...

I made a Gluten Free version of these by using coconut flour instead of reg. flour and half coconut oil and half butter. I also cut the sugar like many suggested to 1 1/4c, and used 3/4 cup fre...

This is fantastic. Tastes almost like a lemon pie. I added a tsp of lemon zest to my filling and also let it bake for 15 min before topping with the coconut. My final product has 3 distinct l...

Oh my goodness, these are just SO good I can't stop eating them. Who knew coconut and lemon would taste so good together? I made the recipe with no changes and it was perfect.

Hubby and I absolutely LOVED these! I have made many lemon bars, but I feel these were by far the best. I followed the recipe to the "T" and had perfect results. Sweet, tart, rich....but all bal...
