Lemon - Coconut Burfi

This was a long awaiting sweet to make. I had this recipe written down a while ago and at last today the time came to try it out.. There is one more reason to make this sweet.. I was passed on a Lemonade Award by LG from Taste of Mysore.. Thank You Lakshmi for passing me this award. I am very humbled and exited by the award as it is my first award. Thought it would be a perfect sweet made with lemon..:-) It turned out yummy, both my husband and my daughter loved it.
I would like to pass this award to Vanamala, Maya and Ujwal. Ingredients: For the Crust: All-purpose flour - 1 cup Granulated Sugar - 1/4 cup Salt - 1/4 tsp Butter Chilled -6 Tb spoon Coconut Flakes - 3/4 cup (toasted) For the Filling: Granulated Sugar - 3/4 cup Eggs - 2 Fresh Lemon Juice - 3 Tb spoon Lemon zest - 1 Tb spoon Baking Powder - 1/2 tsp Salt - pinch Confectioner sugar for dusting Method: To make the crust:
  • In a food processor, combine flour, sugar, and salt. Process briefly until well mixed.
  • Add the butter and coconut and process until the mixture resembles a fine Meal.
  • Transfer to the prepared pan and press into the bottom to form a crust.
  • Bake until light brown around the edges, about 25 min.
For the filling:
  • Combine the sugar, eggs, lemon juice and zest, baking powder and salt in a blender or in a food processor.
  • Process until smooth.
  • When the crust is ready, pout the filling into the hot crust.
  • Continue to bake until the filling begins to brown around the edges and is just springy to touch, about 30 minutes.
  • Let it cool in the pan on a wire rack.
  • Cut into squares, dust the confectioners evenly.
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 5 days.
