Dear SOS: Prior to visiting the Huntington Gardens recently, I stopped at the Julienne Gourmet Market in San Marino and had the most amazing lemon squares — tart and flaky, and with a filling that had both lemon and coconut! Any chance you could obtain the recipe? Thanks!
Dear Lisa: Rich with caramel flavors from the toasted coconut “crust,” lightly tart with fresh lemon juice and zest, perfectly sweet and baked over a shortbread crust, these bars are mighty hard to resist. Julienne was happy to share the recipe, which can also be found in its cookbook “Celebrating With Julienne.”
