  • 1/2 Cup unsalted butter , cut into small pieces
  • 6 large egg yolks

Preheat oven to 350 ℉. Spread coconut on a baking sheet and toast in oven 6-8 minutes, tossing every 2 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven. Transfer to a plate to cool. Combine flour, sugar and half the coconut in a mixing bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Pat dough into the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking pan and bake 20-25 minutes or until golden. While crust is baking, combine egg yolks and condensed milk in a bowl. Whisk vigorously until thick. Slowly beat in lime juice and zest. When crust is done, pour lime mixture onto crust. Sprinkle with remaining coconut and bake 6-8 minutes until mixture is hot. Chill. Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar before serving.
