Lemon Curd Bars


This is my first time making Lemon Curd Bars.  I remembered eight years ago , I did make lemon curd using Martha Stewart's recipe for frosting lemon yogurt cupcake .  My cousin gave me a bottle of prepared lemon curd last week .....wow, a step easier for me as using prepared lemon curd makes baking tangy lemon bars so easy that I can whip up a batch anytime. Dessicated coconut and almonds add extra richness and texture . Recipe is from Allrecipes.com.  Every bite is so yummy good with the lemon curd tanginess bursting in the mouth and I can snack on them while watching korean drama :)
