Nice balance between the lime and the sweetness - and a very easy recipe. I also liked the pecans and coconut in the base. I've made a similar slice before with a plain shortbread crust but the texture and taste of the nuts was more interesting. I scaled up the recipe to 1.5 of this recipe for a tin 8" x 12" but I think I would double the recipe next time to get a slightly thicker slice. Thanks for posting.
