Holly Williams | Key Lime Coconut Bars
HOLLY WILLIAMS is a singer / songwriter who lives with her artist / musician husband Chris Coleman and their 2 daughters and son in Nashville, Tennessee. She has released three critically-acclaimed albums, and also owns two of Nashville’s best retail spots: H. Audrey and White’s Mercantile. Both stores show off her “exquisite taste”, as described by gal-pal and shopper Gwyneth Paltrow. One, H.Audrey, is arguably Nashville’s most beloved women’s clothing boutique, and the other, White’s Mercantile, is a completely curated shop stocked with Holly’s favorite items that she’s found while spending much of her life on the highway playing music to adoring fans. She describes White’s as a “general store for the modern-day tastemaker”. She may be from a famous family–country legend Hank Williams Jr. is her father–but don’t expect rhinestones and cowboy hats. Holly’s style embodies a modern-day chic simplicity fitted for shoppers around the globe.

key lime coconut bars

holly williams recipes

Happy July 4th! Hopefully you will be sprinting to the grocery store to make these for your friends and they will love you forever and ever. Key Lime. My obsession. There is nothing worse than bad, sour, manufactured tasting key lime desserts-yet truly nothing better than a real homemade batch of key lime anything!! My mom has been obsessed with key lime pie since I can remember, and she turned me onto the deliciousness of one made from scratch which I’m happy to say I semi-mastered a few summers ago!

Today’s recipe and pictures come from another one of my favorite bloggers, the lovely and talented Katie Jacobs at StylingMyEveryday.com. Beautiful foodie-friendly blog with her stunning pictures! Go here to drool and find many more things to make you very, very happy about cooking. I could eat bags and bags of shredded coconut, literally, and especially now that I’m knocked up! The coconut is the perfect addition to these crazy good treats. Enjoy!

-directions-

. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spread coconut on a rimmed baking sheet, and toast until golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes, tossing every 2 minutes to ensure even browning. Remove from oven; transfer to a plate to cool.

. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour and sugar, and the toasted coconut. Using or a pastry cutter (or your fingers), cut the butter into the flour-coconut mixture until it resembles coarse meal. Pat mixture into a 9-by-13-inch pan, and bake until golden, 15 to 20 minutes. Allow to cool slightly.

. Meanwhile, beat together egg yolks and condensed milk with a whisk until thick. Gradually beat in lime zest and juice. Pour into cooled crust and bake until just hot, 6 to 8 minutes. Cool completely, then chill until ready to serve. Cut into bars. Before serving, sprinkle with toasted coconut, and garnish with lime zest, if desired.
