    FloridaNative's Note:

    From Southern Living magazine, April 2011. I've not tried this recipe, but it sounds really good. NOTE: This recipe has quite a bit of sugar in it, so for my family, I would personally experiment with it using Splenda to cut the sugar for a diabetic dessert. I would also use gluten-free AP flour.

      WOW, this is a keeper!
      I love the lime, coconut and tequila combination. Not to sweet really!
      Tomorrow my daughter will bring them in the school, but we had to keep some of them: they are too good!

      Yum! Loved the crunchy crust on the bottom! The tequila taste is much more prominent when the bars are warm, but I think overall the bars are better the next day, once the flavors have melded a bit. This will definitely be going into my keeper file, thanks for posting! Made for the Emerald City Shakers for ZWT7
