Ingredients

  • cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 6 Tablespoons butter melted
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • zest of 1 lime
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • ½ cup fresh lime juice
  • ½ cup coconut

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8x8" pan with cooking spray.
  • In a small bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, sugar, and lime zest until the crumbs are moist.
  • Press the mixture firmly in to the bottom of the 8x8 pan, and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let it cool completely.
  • After the pan has cooled, whisk together the egg yolks and sweetened condensed milk in a medium-sized bowl. Slowly add in the lime juice, and mix until it starts to thicken slightly.
  • Pour the lime filling over the graham cracker crust, and then top with coconut.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, or until just set.
  • Cool to room temperature and then refrigerate for at least one hour before serving.

Notes

You can also add fresh lime zest as a garnish.
*Even though they are lime bars, they come out as a pale yellow color. You could add a drop or two of green food coloring if you wanted them to be darker.
