Coconut Lemon Squares

Mix and press into greased 13"x9"x2" pan:
2 cups flower
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 cup butter or margarine (softened)
Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes.

Stir together:
4 eggs
2 cups granulated sugar
1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
Then add:
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 cups cocnut
Pour over baked crust. Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes, until the middle is not too runny. (If it's runny, you'll have to eat it with a fork or spoon, but the bars are really good that way, too!)

Cool and glaze with:
1 3/4 cups powdered sugar
3-4 Tablespoons lemon juice.

Cool slightly (or completely) and cut.

If those are the same ones we had at your place, I am a big fan.

I have tried a variation of these with fresh canberries mixed into the lemon. Maybe a bit over the top, but I love the tartness.

This is the recipe for the squares you had at my place. I love tartness . . .cranberries would also look super pretty.

I used to have a blog, awhile ago (I think I posted twice) but it was originally set up so that Cory and I could both post. I have no idea how I posted that last comment as cornelis - very strange. . .
