Original recipe yields 36 squares

Directions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

This is a family favorite that my mom made when I was growing up. My recipe calls for 1/2 cup powdered sugar in the crust instead of white sugar. I also bake mine in a 13 x 9 pan and cut in small 1 inch square pieces for almost a "candy" type of taste rather than eating a big bar. They are wonderful--I have always gotten rave reviews.

*The author forgot to add the lemon to the main part of the squares*. My boyfriend made these for my bday, leaving the lemon out of the squares (it was still in the icing). Even without the lemon in the squares THEY WERE SO DELICIOUS. I almost ate the entire pan myself. Next time we'll add the lemon to the squares and the icing!

I grew up with this recipe. The lemon glaze is supposed to seep into the second layer. The author didn't forget to add lemon to the second layer. I also suggest not adding lemon to the second layer but increasing the amount of lemon juice in the glaze to 6 tsps
