Crust
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Brush an 8-inch square baking dish with melted butter.
  3. Line bottom with parchment paper, leaving a 2-inch overhang on two sides.
  4. In a food processor, finely grind graham crackers, then add coconut and pulse 2 more times.
  5. Add sugar and melted butter and mix together.
  6. Press crust evenly into bottom of the pan.
  7. Bake until slightly browned, about 8-12 minutes. Allow to cool for 30 minutes.
  8. While crust is cooling, start the filling.
Filling
  1. Mix all filling ingredients together.
  2. Pour into cooled crust and bake until set, about 20 minutes.
  3. Once cooled, cut into squares. For best cutting results, run your knife under hot water and wipe clean after every cut. Sprinkle with powdered sugar just before serving.
