Ingredients

Filling

1 cup lime juice

2 (14-ounce) cans sweetened condensed milk

1 teaspoon freshly grated lime peel

1 to 2 drops green food color

Crust

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup slivered almonds,  ground

1/2 cup cold Land O Lakes® Butter

Topping

1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut

 

 *Substitute 1/2 cup finely chopped macadamia nuts.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine all filling ingredients in bowl with whisk. Set aside. (Mixture will thicken slightly.)

  3. STEP 3

    Combine flour, sugar and ground almonds in bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

  4. STEP 4

    Pat mixture evenly into ungreased 13x9-inch baking pan. Bake 16-18 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.

  5. STEP 5

    Pour filling mixture over hot, partially baked crust. Sprinkle with coconut. Continue baking 15-17 minutes or until filling is set. Cool completely. Cut into bars. Cover; store refrigerated.

Tip #1

No need to add sugar to the filling in this easy bar. Sweetened condensed milk is a mixture of whole milk and sugar. Water is evaporated off the milk before canning, making a sweet and sticky product. Store unopened sweetened condensed milk at room temperature for up to 6 months. After opening, refrigerate any unused milk in an airtight container and store for no more than 5 days.

Tip #2

Reduce oven temperature to 325°F. if using dark or nonstick baking pan.
