You Put the Lime in the Coconut

I had some purchased lime curd that needed to be used, soon.  Coconut and Lime!
Lime Coconut Bars
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup butter
1 large egg
1 jar lime curd
1 large egg, well beaten
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup coconut
Preheat oven to 350
Combine flour, and baking powder in a mixing bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or your hands till it resembles crumbs.
 this is before mixing

Add egg and mix well. Press mixture into a greased (buttered) 9 inch  square pan.
Spread with curd.
Make topping:
In a mixer bowl, beat egg till foamy, gradually add sugar. Continue beating till light and fluffy and it holds soft peaks.  Fold in coconut

Spread over curd
Bake for 25-30 minutes
Just in the oven
Cut into bars when cool.

I baked this in a foil pan as I am giving them away. :)
