Coconut Lime Sours

Recipe by greysangel

Someone made these for my holiday cookie swap last year and they are a light, citrusy treat on a heavy buttery tray!

These were indeed sour, much more sour than I expected! I only had unsweetened coconut around, so I tried using that. Next time I'll up the sugar intake a little more. These are such summery bars! They're so light and fresh, and so different from the treats I usually bake.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, and salt in a bowl. Cut in margarine until mixture resembles coarse meal. Press crust into ungreased 9 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.
  5. While still warm, loosen the edges with a metal spatula. 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 while still warm. Let cool to room temperature and cut into bars.
