Ingredients

Crust:

Vegetable oil, for greasing the pan

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 

1/2 cup granulated sugar 

Pinch salt 

1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature

Filling:

Two 15-ounce cans diced mango, syrup drained

1 1/2 cups granulated sugar 

5 large eggs 

1 teaspoon lemon zest plus 1/3 cup lemon juice 

1/2 cup all-purpose flour 

Topping:

Powdered sugar, for dusting

1 cup toasted coconut 

Directions

  1. For the crust: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with parchment paper and grease with vegetable oil.
  2. In a medium bowl, sift the flour, granulated sugar and salt. Add the butter to the dry ingredients and mix with a spatula or spoon. Press the crust mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake until the crust is lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Let cool slightly.
  3. For the filling: Blend the mango with 2 tablespoons water in a blender.
  4. Beat together the granulated sugar and eggs in a bowl until combined. Stir in the lemon zest and juice and mango puree. Stir in the flour.
  5. Pour the filling over the crust. Lower the oven temperature to 325 degrees F and bake until the filling is set, about 25 minutes. Let cool, then refrigerate at least 1 hour before cutting the bars.
  6. For the topping: Dust the bars with powdered sugar, sprinkle with toasted coconut and enjoy!
