Combine the unique, crispy crust with the vibrant, creamy filling, the sweetness of chewy coconut with the tanginess of complex citrus, and what do you get? An amazingly refreshing cookie bar. These babies have zing! They also make for a perfect presentation at your Easter table, or a light spring/summer dessert. Bring on the sunshine!
