Cook's Notes

Key limes, so called because they were once cultivated in the Florida Keys, are also known as West Indian, Mexican, or bartender's limes. You'll need anywhere from one-half to two-thirds of a pound, depending on how fresh and juicy they are. If you can't find Key limes, regular limes also make delicious cookies.

    These are really delicious, and definitely my go-to lime bar recipe. I omit the coconut since I'm not a fan, and it's fine without it. The white chocolate adds the perfect something to the crust.

    They taste good and are fairly easy to make but to say that this recipe yields 64 bars is way off. I was only able to get 20 small bars out of mine.

    The recipe states the yield as 64 bars ---I don't thing you can get that out of a pan that is 8X8 inches. I will bake these over the weekend and in my opinion if you get 16 bars, that would be good.
