Lemon Coconut Bars





I'm so excited that it's Spring!  The longer days of sunshine just put me in a good mood.  While I was blog surfing, I saw these beautiful bar cookies and I thought these would be the perfect spring treat.  Fortunately, I have a houseful of twenty year olds home for spring break, so I can make a few extra things without worrying that it will be just hubby and me eating them.  I was also lucky enough to have Miss M here to help me make them.  These bars turned out to be really delicious and incredibly easy.  They were a lovely combination of  lemony sweet and tart and I was surprised at just how wonderful the coconut was in these bars.  It added an extra dimension of flavor and a nice textural element.  These are just the right treat to welcome spring! Enjoy!!!

This recipe is at my new site. Hope to see you there :) I've posted a lot of new things.

  26. Ooooh. A twist on the lemon bar. Who knew it could be improved upon. Love it! Too bad I don't have a house full of spring breakers. I'd have to eat these all by my self. Not good for my spring break clothes...

  28. Lemon bars with toasted coconut, great combination. I'm sure my teenage son would make short work of these. In fact, I'm not sure that he would even share these with his friends.

  32. I saw these at Jamie's. I normally like coconut just by itself but if the two of you both said these were good...just maybe I need to rethink things.
