Put the Lemon in the Coconut

Hey Ya'll!  Thanks for stopping by today.  I just wanted to give you a big THANKS for coming by and reading this little ol'blog.  It's a work in progress and I love that you take the time out of your busy day to show me a little love.  BIG NEWS, tomorrow marks my 2nd giveaway!  Make sure to stop by and enter!

This past weekend I did a little baking and decided to share this oh-so-yummy recipe with you.  I actually grabbed this recipe from Pinterest.  Who loves Pinterest?  I'm totally addicted!!!  Hope you enjoy!

Lemon Coconut Bars

~1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
~1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
~3/4 cup cold butter or margarine
~4 eggs
~1 1/2 cups of sugar
~1/2 cup lemon juice
~1 teaspoon baking powder
~1 cup flaked coconut

 Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a 9 x 13 x 2 inch pan with foil or parchment paper and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
 In a bowl, combine flour and confectioners’ sugar; cut in the butter until crumbly (I used my food processor and pulsed the ingredients until thoroughly combined).
 Press into the bottom of a lightly greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes.
 Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, lemon juice and baking powder until well mixed. Pour over crust; sprinkle coconut evenly over the top.
 Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
 Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars.

These are so yummy and didn't last but 2 days in my house-hold. They kinda remind me of a tropical beach, this is what  I'm dreaming about these cold and snowy days.  Does this recipe remind anyone of this....Put the lime lemon in the coconut.

  Check back tomorrow for the Valentines Giveaway!  XO
