“These squares have a nice lemony taste to them for all of the lemon lovers.” - by Heather
Original recipe yields 36 squares
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a medium bowl, mix together 1 1/2 cups flour, 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 cup butter until the mixture is mealy. Press into the bottom of an ungreased 9x9 inch pan.
- Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden. In a medium bowl, beat eggs until light, and stir in the 3 tablespoons of lemon juice. Combine 1 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, baking powder and salt (if desired); whisk into the eggs. Stir in the coconut. Pour over the baked crust and spread evenly.
- Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until center is set and bars are golden. Cool and frost. To make the frosting: In a small bowl, stir together the confectioners' sugar and 2 tablespoons butter. Mix in the lemon juice 1 teaspoon at a time as needed for desired spreading consistency. Spread over cooled bars.
