Coconut Lime Squares


1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. butter
2 eggs
1 c. brown sugar
1 1/2 c. coconut
1 Lime
1/2 c. nuts (I used pecans chopped finely)
2 T. flour
1/2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
1/2 t. vanilla

Mix first three ingredients on low speed until crumbly. Pat in buttered 9 x 13" baking pan. Bake at 275 degrees for 10 minutes.
Wash lime and grate rind. Beat eggs. Add remaining ingredients and lime rind. Spread mixture on bottom crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. While warm spread with frosting. Cut into squares.

Frosting:
1 c. powered sugar
1 T. juice from lime
1 T. butter, melted

These were a fun change of pace to our normal desserts we have. When I read the recipe title, I thought it was going to be a lot like "lemon bars". But after tasting them, there were many noticeable differences. They were good, but lots more texture to it.
