    Bev's Note:

    If you love lemon the way our family does you will love these lemon squares! Just the slightest hint of coconut in the bottom layers gives it just the right touch. Lemony delicious layer completes the top! Hmmmmm! So delicious you won't be able to stop at just one!

      I had company for Sunday dinner and this recipe was a star!! Bev, you are right, it is so easy to make and has a wonderful lemon flavor. I followed the directions exactly, and everything was perfect. I did make them on Saturday and they kept very well.................well, there were a few pieces missing when dinner time came, but I put the dessert on individual plates, so guests couldn't see the gaping hole!!! Very good, and this will definately go in m T&T book. Thanks Bev, for posting one of your family favorites.

      I had a craving for something other than chocolate for a change. I picked a winner in making your Lemon Squares! I loved the coconut added to the crust, it added a little bit more texture. While I was at it, I added some to the filling. As it cooked, the coconut formed a thin chewey layer on top. Best of all, it wasn't overly sweet like some others I have tasted. Didn't even miss the chocolate!

      To: Bev My oh My, these Lemon Squares are delicious! They have just the right touch of lemon and coconut. Easy, easy to put together, as well. I took the liberty of adding lemon zest to the filling. They're a 5-star keeper!! Thanks for posting. Laudee C.
