Original recipe yields 1 9x9 inch pan

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees).
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the 2 tablespoons of sugar with the 1 cup of flour. Cut in the 1/3 cup of butter until mixture is coarse crumbs. Press firmly into the bottom of a 9x9 inch baking pan. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Set aside to cool.
  3. In the same bowl, stir together the sugar, salt, and baking powder. Add the eggs and vanilla, mix well. Stir in the coconut and chopped nuts until everything is coated. Spread the mixture evenly over the baked crust. Return to the oven to bake for an additional 25 to 30 minutes.
  4. To make the icing, combine the lemon zest, lemon juice and confectioners' sugar. Beat until smooth. Pour and spread over the top of the bars as soon as they come out of the oven. Cool for 15 minutes before cutting into bars.

Ok, I have no idea what the other reviewers commented on, but I don't think it was this recipe?! I LOVE sweets, and in fact being 1 of 7 kids (Big Family) I am the one everyone calls for the "next best dessert" recipe. The icing was way too tangy for the almost pecan pie type underfilling. Imagine a Pecan pie with a tangy lemon icing on top. Not my idea of a good dessert. Sorry to be so negative but these were just not good at all. Dissapointment.

Great recipe! I've now made these 3 times, and have found that also adding about 1/4 tsp of lemon extract will take care of those who don't think that it's "lemony enough".
