Original recipe yields 12 lemon bars

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place 1 1/3 cups flour, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1 tablespoon lemon zest, and the ground almonds in a mixing bowl. Add the softened butter and mix with your hands until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press into the bottom of a 9-inch square baking dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the crust is golden brown, about 20 minutes.
  4. While the crust is baking, stir together the brown sugar, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1 tablespoon flour, and the baking powder in a bowl. Add the eggs, coconut, lemon zest, and lemon juice; whisk until the sugars have dissolved; pour over the crust.
  5. Return to the oven and bake until the lemon filling has firmed, about 15 minutes. Cool completely in the pan before cutting.

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:)
