HONEY LEMON SQUARES

1 c. light brown sugar
2 c. flour
1/2 c. butter
1 c. coconut
1 c. honey
2 T. butter
1/4 c. fresh lemon juice
3 eggs, slightly beaten

Cut together the first 4 ingredients. Press 2/3 of the mixture on the bottom of an ungreased (9 inch) square glass pan. In a small saucepan cook the honey, 2 T. butter and lemon juice til just lukewarm. Add the eggs and continue cooking, stirring constantly, til thickened (about 5 minutes). Cool the mixture in a ice-water bath and pour over the crust. Top with the remaining 1/3 crumb mixture, pressing down lightly to make it even. Bake 350° for 30-40 minutes til nicely browned. Cool and cut.
(makes 3 dozen 3 1/2 inch squares)
