DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350°.
  • Mix the flour and butter together until it resembles a very fine crumb.
  • Sprinkle evenly into the bottom of an 11 X 7" pan, and pat lightly to smooth out any lumps.
  • Bake for 10 minutes at 350°.
  • Meanwhile beat the eggs, and mix in the brown sugar, nuts, coconut, vanilla and baking powder.
  • Spread this mixture onto the baked crust as soon as you take it from the oven.
  • Return the pan to the oven and bake for an additional 20 minutes at 350°.
  • Mix the lemon rind and juice with the confectioner's sugar to make a creamy glaze.
  • Spread the lemon glaze evenly over the top of the hot cookie mixture as soon as you take it from the oven.
  • Cool completely before cutting into squares.
  • Store in an airtight container as the lemon glaze will dry out if left out for more than a day.
  • (This is not usually a problem because there are never any leftovers!)**I use the Angel Flake coconut in the can or the bag.
  • Any brand of moist, flaked coconut will do, but you do not want to use the dry, shredded coconut for this recipe.
