The only thing I did different was to sprinkle toasted coconut on top of the frosting because I had some. This bar is decadent!! Thanks so much for the recipe.

Wow! These are amazing! I served them at my daughter's baby shower and I had 30 requests for the recipe. They are so lemony without being overwhelming and the crust and frosting are devine. Thanks for such a time honoured recipe that truly lives up to its reputation! Cathy

Very good and very rich, just what I want in a lemon bar. Loved the frosting. Thanks for the great posting.

I know I'm not supposed to talk with my mouth full... but these are just too good to put down! By far the best lemon bars I have ever tasted. The crust is light & flaky & the filling really is a dream. Lemony in flavor with a beautiful texture that gently balances the smooth & creamy filling with chewy coconut. The quick lemon frosting is just the cherry on top. I used 2 fresh lemons for this recipe, as I had them on hand. They yielded plenty of juice for the 8 Tablespoons called for & the remainder I considered the "juice of one lemon". I have no doubt that these sunny bars are always a hit when served. We'll be making them again. Thanks for sharing your special recipe, Jennifer! Made, enjoyed & reviewed for Pick-A-Chef Spring 2008.
