Lemon coconut squares

Photo from taste of home

I love lemon and coconut and this recipe is the perfect combo of both ! These are great for bake sales or any time you want a great treat !

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


In a small bowl, combine flour and confectioners' sugar; cut in the butter until crumbly. Press into a lightly greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, in another small bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, lemon juice and baking powder until combined. Pour over crust; sprinkle with coconut.
Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into squares. Yield: 4 dozen.
