I will never use another lemon bar recipe again. This one is it! It is the perfect combination of tart and sweet without it being over the top on the lemon flavor. The shortbread is tasty on its own and the coconut adds just a little bit to it for texture and taste. Enjoy!

Source: My Baking Addiction
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar
3/4 cup cold butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup flaked coconut
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a 9×13 inch pan with foil or parchment paper and spray it with non-stick cooking spray.
In a bowl, combine flour and confectioner’s sugar; cut in the butter until crumbly.
Press into the bottom of a lightly greased 9×13 inch baking pan. Bake for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, lemon juice, and baking powder until well mixed. Pour over crust; sprinkle coconut evenly over the top.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars.
