From Company's Coming's "Most Loved Treats". I am intrigued by these bars as they contain soda crackers! Will let you know when I try them out!

These are delicious! My mother has a recipe similar to this, without the baking powder in the crust; also, she uses just lemon juice in the filling. It's better to eat this with a plate and fork, because the crust tends to be crumbly. I (personally) like to use soda crackers with salt, becasue it adds a nice depth to the crust, and helps cut through the sweetness of the coconut and the filling.
