Grapefruit Coconut Bars

Add a new twist on the classic lemon bar. These Grapefruit Coconut Bars are the perfect way to lighten up the day!



Preheat oven to 350 F and spray a 9-by-13-inch pan with non-stick cooking spray

Combine butter, flour, shredded coconut, coconut extract, powdered sugar, and salt in a bowl until the dough resembles small pea-sized pieces

Pat dough into the bottom of the pan evenly

Bake for 10 minutes

Remove crust from oven, and then start to prepare filling while the crust is cooling

For the filling, blend eggs, sugar, flour, grapefruit juice and peel until all are combined (note it will be lumpy, but will smooth out during baking)

Pour filling over crust

Bake for about 20 minutes or until the sides begin to loosen from the pan

Allow to cool: right before serving, cut into bars, sift with powdered sugar and serve immediately
