Cranberry Lemon Squares

Recipe by Canadian Living.

These squares are amazing! They are perfectly sweet and perfectly tart.

What you'll need
2 cups All-purpose flour
1/2 cup Sugar
1/4 tsp Salt
3/4 cup Butter, cubed and softened

2 tbsp All-purpose flour
1 tsp Baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3 Eggs
1 3/4 cup Sugar
1/3 cup Lemon juice
2 cups Cranberries (fresh or frozen), quartered
2 cups Coconut (shredded or flaked)

How to
1. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar and salt. Sprinkle with butter; cut in with pastry blender until crumbly and moist enough to squeeze together. Spread in a 13 X 9-inch parchment paper lined cake pan, pressing to level. Bake at 350°F until golden brown, about 20 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.

3. In a separate large bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar and lemon juice; whisk in flour mixture. Stir in cranberries and coconut and scrape onto base.

4. Reduce heat to 325°F. Bake until pale gold and filling is firm in the centre, 45 to 55 minutes. Let cool in pan on rack.
