  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup powdered sugar, plus more for dusting

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 13x9-inch baking dish with butter. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, xantham gum, salt, powdered sugar, coconut flakes and 1 teaspoon lemon zest. Using a pastry blender, cut in the butter until mixture looks like coarse crumbs.
