Ingredients
For the crust
  • 1 cup unbleached all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup confectioners sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ cup (1 stick) cold, unsalted butter, cut in pieces
  • ¼ cup shelled pistachios
For filling
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 4 Tbsp lemon juice (I got from juice of 2 lemons)
  • ⅓ cup shelled pistachios
For coconut whipped cream
  • 1 can full fat coconut milk
  • 1 Tbsp powdered sugar
Instructions
For the crust
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Process flour, sugar and salt in a food processor. Add butter and pistachios and process until it comes together. In a parchment lined baking pan, preferably an 8" square shaped, press the dough evenly. Bake at 350F for 16-20 minutes until only lightly browned.
For filling
  1. Grind the pistachios in the food processor for a kind of chunky texture. Whisk together all the ingredients and pour in the baked crust. Bake for around 20 minutes at 350F. Once done, let it rest out until warm. Chill and cut in pieces. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator.
For coconut whipped cream
  1. Leave the coconut milk can in the refrigerator over night. Move it without much disturbance and place it the same way as kept in refrigerator. Sitting overnight ensures that the cream and water separate properly. In a bowl take out the coconut cream. Add sugar and whip until soft peaks form. Serve bars with coconut whipped cream.
