There's a Christmas recipe link-up over at the Family Channel of Exemplify Online.
One of my favourite cookies to serve or to give away as gifts packed in pretty tins is
Fresh Lemon Squares
2 c flour
1 c chilled butter cut in small pieces
1/2 c icing sugar
1/2 c sweetened shredded coconut
2 c sugar
4 large eggs
1/2 c fresh lemon juice*
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 c flour
Preheat oven to 350.
Butter 13x9x2 inch baking pan.
Combine 2 c flour, butter, icing sugar and coconut in food processor.
Process until moist clumps form.
Press onto bottom of prepared pan.
Bake until edges are golden, about 20 minutes.
Whisk 2 c sugar, eggs, lemon juice, baking powder and
1/4 c flour until well blended.
Pour over hot crust.
Bake until topping is set and light golden brown, about 25 minutes.
Cool in pan on rack.
Cut into 36 squares.
*I have used a combination of lemon, lime and orange juice for a
fresh citrus taste. Fresh juice is essential to the great flavor.
