I made Lemon Coconut Bars for the Richmond Community Kitchen Open House. These Lemon Coconut Bars are ultra sweet and you should enjoy it only once in a blue moon. I thought it should be perfect for potluck where each person will only try a small piece.
The Lemon Coconut Bar is rich with coconut aroma and lemon flavour. The base of the bar is crispy while the top is chewy. It is a bit too sweet even for my sweet tooth. I would recommend to reduce the sugar by half a cup each for the crust and filing.
- 1 cup margarine, softened
- 2 cups powdered sugar (I would recommend to reduce by 1/2 cup)
- 2 cups flour
- 4 teaspoons lemon juice
- grated lemon rinds from two lemons
- 4 eggs
- 2 cups sugar (I would recommend to reduce by 1/2 cup)
- 4 tablespoons flour
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
