2 cups flour

4 tablespoons sugar

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/4 pound (1 stick), plus 2 1/2 tablespoons 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 tablespoons fresh lime juice

2 teaspoons lime zest


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. 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. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  3. Mix eggs, nuts, brown sugar, and coconut until well blended; spread over baked crust.
  4. Bake an additional 30 minutes or until set.
  5. 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. Cut 11 cuts crosswise and 3 cuts lengthwise.
