Gluten-Free Lemon Bars with Coconut Crust are truly delectable will make you a star! They're sweet, tart and with pink lemons, they're over-the-top beautiful!
Preheat the oven to 350°F, and adjust a rack to the top third.
Use a tiny bit of the 1 teaspoon of butter to lightly dab the bottom and sides of an 8 X 8 inch baking pan. Now line the pan with parchment paper (the dabs of butter will help it stick). Be sure to use a large enough piece that will cover the bottom and sides. Cut slits in each corner so that it will lay flat. Now grease the parchment paper with what's left of the 1 teaspoon of butter. Set aside.
Pour the filling over the baked, cooled crust (it's okay if it's still a bit warm). Return the pan to the oven and bake just until it's set and lightly browned on top, about 25 minutes. (If you fear it's becoming too brown and isn't yet set, lay a piece of foil lightly over the top until it's done.) Remove from the oven and let it cool completely in the pan.
While the crust does hold together nicely, these bars are not super sturdy. They might fall apart a bit if you pick them up in your hands, and are therefore best eaten with a fork on a plate.
