Katie Rose from Pewaukee, Wisconsin shares this sweet-tart dessert. The shortbread-nut crust and tangyy filling make it a satisfying dessert or afternoon snack.


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons macadamia nuts, toasted
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated lime zest
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter, cubed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons sweetened shredded coconut, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated lime zest
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  • Confectioners' sugar


  1. In a food processor, combine the flour, confectioners' sugar, nuts and lime zest; cover and process until nuts are finely chopped. Add the butter; pulse just until mixture is crumbly.
  2. Press into an 8x4-in. loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 20-22 minutes or until golden brown.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk the egg, sugar, coconut, lime juice, flour, lime zest and baking powder until blended. Pour over hot crust. Bake 20-22 minutes longer or until light golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Dust with confectioners' sugar. Cut into bars.
