These are very lemony, “coconutty”, soft and gooey,  Very easy to make with no “creaming the butter and sugar” something I am allergic to doing!


1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter

Crumble it together lightly with your hands until it resembles fine bread crumbs and press it into a 9 x 9” baking pan.
Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes. Set aside for 20 minutes to cool a little.

Mix together;

2 slightly beaten eggs
3 tbsp lemon juice or more if you like things really tart and lemony.
1 cup sugar
2 tbsp flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup sweetened desiccated coconut (and extra for sprinkling n the top)
1/4 tsp salt

Pour this over the baked crust.
Put in the oven for 30 minutes

If you want it to look really nice, sprinkle it with icing sugar or more coconut when it has cooked so it looks like a snowfall.
You can also sprinkle the top with more coconut “before” cooking and it will brown a little, but be careful it doesn’t burn
