FOR
THE CRUST
2
cups graham cracker crumbs
3
tablespoons brown sugar
4
tablespoons melted butter
FOR
THE FILLING
2
ounces cream cheese, softened
1
tablespoons grated lime zest
1
14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1
large egg yolk
1/2
cup fresh lime juice
3/4
cup coconut, toasted

Directions

  • 1 Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F, adjusting an oven rack to the middle position. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil, letting two opposing edges hang over at least an inch or so. Grease the foil with cooking spray.
  • 2 For the crust, mix the graham cracker crumbs, and sugar together in a medium bowl. Drizzle the melted butter over the crumbs and stir together in a bowl with a fork. Sprinkle the mixture into the prepared pan and press the crumbs into an even layer. Bake the crust until fragrant and golden, about 15-18 minutes.
  • 3 For the filling, while crust bakes, in a medium bowl, stir the cream cheese, and lime zest together until combined. Whisk in the sweetened condensed milk until smooth (you can use a handheld electric mixer, if you want). Whisk in the egg yolk and lime juice until combined.
  • 4 Pour the filling evenly over the crust. Bake the bars until the filling is set and the edges just slightly begin to pull away from the sides of the pan, 15-17 minutes.
  • 5 Let the bars cool completely in the pan set on a wire rack, about 2 hours. Top with toasted coconut. Then cover the pan with foil and refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours. Remove the bars from the pan using the foil overhang and cut into squares.
