The buttery crust and tart filling of traditional lemon bars, with a coconut twist!

This recipe was developed in partnership with the American Butter Institute.

Here in Moab we have been enjoying the most dreamy pre-spring weather. It’s been sunny, warm, and today I even got to break out my flip flops. Hooray! We’re still in our first year here so I’m not really sure if this is normal or not, but I sure hope this isn’t just a big tease.

Winter be gone!

I just can’t help it! I love creating fun recipes I know my son will get a kick out of, and bonus points if he can help me make them. He had so much fun with these— sprinkling the toasted coconut on top and eating as many candy Easter eggs as I’d let him. Continue Reading…
