Coconut Lime Sours

I was introduced to this tasty treat at Jeni Georgia's and loved the unique taste.  Kayla also tried these at the Georgia's and begged me to get the recipe.  We finally made them yummy!  This is the recipe courtesy of Bonnye Jolley.

2 cups flour
4 T. sugar
1/8 tsp. salt
1 stick, plus 2 1/2 T. margarine
4 eggs, beaten
1 cup almonds, chopped
2 cups light brown sugar, firmly packed
3 cups sweetened flaked coconut
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 T. fresh lime juice
2 tsp. lime zest

Combine flour, sugar, and salt in a bowl.  Cut in margarine until mixture resembles coarse meal.  Press crust into ungreased 10 by 15 inch baking pan (I used 9 x 13).  Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Mix eggs, nuts, brown sugar, and coconut until well blended; spread over baked crust.

Bake an additional 15 - 20 minutes or until set.

While still warm, loosen the edges with a metal spatula.  Mix together the powdered sugar, lime juice, and zest with a fork.  Working quickly, spread the lime paste all over the top with a spatula while still warm.  Let cool to room temperature and cut into bars.
