These lemon coconut shortbread bars are simple and quick to make, and everyone loves to eat them!
I hosted a party last week and today I’m sharing with you a yummy dessert I made, lemon coconut shortbread bars that are perfect for any party or celebration.
Because I love to bake, I always bake an item for an event and the appetizers I provide are usually very simple.
But when you bake an item, it adds a special touch. And the easiest thing to bake for a get-together are bars or squares.
I’m also sharing with you a special giveaway of some gorgeous utensils from Polder’s Old World Market.
