    These are decadent and indulgent, and I decadently indulged in about a quarter of the pan! The coconut and lemon flavors mix very well together and are fun and bright for summer. I made these gluten free by using rice flour. I gave the rest as a gift to our vet for taking such great care of our puppy, and he said everyone in the office loved them! Thank you for posting!

    These were really good and really easy to whip up. Made as directed but halved the recipe and baked in an 8x8" pan. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    Some of the nicest lemon squares I have made and my family LOVED the coconut as an added element too! I increased the lemon as we are all lemon lovers! Merci! Made it whilst back in the UK on holiday, sorry for being late! Made for Recipe Swap in OZ/NZ forum.

    Wow, what flavor these little gems have, wasn't expecting that. I made half the recipe and baked in a 8 x 8 metal pan. I had trouble getting them out of the pan, they didn't look great but boy, do they taste fantastic. I cut them small because, they have a big, bold flavor, which we adore. I used three small meyer lemons. I really enjoy the combination of lemon and coconut. These squares were quick and easy to make. Thanks so much for sharing, made for ZWT7 for the Witchin Kitchen.
