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

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 lemon juice and zest. When crust is done, pour lemon mixture onto crust. Sprinkle with remaining coconut and bake about 6-8 minutes until mixture is hot. Chill.
