Coconut Pecan Lime Bars


Ingredients:

  • 2 cups flour

  • 4 tablespoons sugar

  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

  • 1 stick, plus 2 1/2 tablespoons butter

  • 4 eggs, beaten

  • 1 cup pecans, chopped

  • 2 cups light brown sugar, firmly packed

  • 3 cups sweetened flaked coconut

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

  • 2 teaspoons lime zest

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Combine flour, sugar, and salt in a bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Press crust into a parchment paper lined 10 by 15-inch baking pan. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

3. Mix eggs, nuts, brown sugar, and coconut until well blended; spread over baked crust.

4. Bake an additional 30 minutes or until set. While still warm, mix together the powdered sugar, lime juice, and zest with a fork. Working quickly, spread the lime paste all over the top with a spatula. Let cool to room temperature and cut into bars.
