Tasty Tuesdays: Summer Vacation

I've decided to put the Tasty Tuesday link up party on Summer vacation.  I have too much going on this Summer to keep up with blogging.  I hope you understand!  I hope to see you back here in the Fall.  Enjoy your Summer!

Tasty Tuesdays: Coconut Lime Bars

 Welcome to Tasty Tuesdays!
On Sunday, my sister and I had our Mom over for dinner for Mother's Day.  For dessert, I made these delicious lime bars.  My Mom & I thought they were delicious.  My sister isn't a huge key lime fan, so her favorite part was the crust.
{ Original recipe from Martha Stewart Living.  Find it here. }
- 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces, plus more, softened, for pan
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons light-brown sugar
- Rounded 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
- 1/2 cup finely shredded unsweetened coconut
- 3 ounces white chocolate, coarsely chopped (about 1/2 cup)
- 3 large eggs, room temperature
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 2/3 cup fresh Key lime juice or regular lime juice
- 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar, for dusting
1.  Crust: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly butter an 8-inch square baking pan. Line bottom and 2 sides of pan with parchment, leaving a 1-inch overhang; lightly butter the parchment.
2.  Combine flour, brown sugar, and salt in a medium size bowl and stir until combined. Add butter; use a pastry blender until largest pieces are the size of peas. Add coconut and white chocolate, and combine, just until mixture holds together. Transfer mixture to pan, and pack down firmly with the bottom of a measuring cup. Bake until crust is deep golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven, and reduce heat to 300 degrees.
3.  Filling: Whisk together eggs and granulated sugar in a bowl, then whisk in flour. Gently stir in lime juice (do not whisk or stir vigorously or batter will become foamy).
4.  Pour filling over hot crust, and bake until filling is set, about 15 minutes. Let cool completely on a wire rack.
5.  Run the tip of a knife along the 2 sides of the pan not lined with parchment, then remove from pan by lifting with parchment overhang. Transfer to a cutting board, dust with confectioners' sugar, and cut into 1-inch squares.
