Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Line a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with foil. Butter pan and set aside.

In food processor combine:

1 1/2 cups brown rice flour

1/4 cup potato flour, 1/4 cup corn starch

1/2 cup powdered sugar 

1/4 tsp sea salt

3/4 cup butter.

Pulse until mixture is combined. Press crust into the bottom of prepared pan. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until edges begin to golden.

Lime Filling:

beat 4 eggs with 1 1/2 cups cane sugar, 3 tablespoons corn starch, and 1 cup lime juice. Pour filling over hot crust.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes more or until center is set. In oven toast 2 cups sweetened coconut until golden. Sprinkle over baked lime bars and then cool. Slice before serving.

I hope you enjoy, I know I certainly will. Until next time, this is Arco Aquilus, signing off!
