  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
   1 1/2  cups          all-purpose flour
     1/2  teaspoon      salt
   1      cup           sugar -- divided
     1/2  cup           butter or margarine
   4      cups          sliced peeled apples
   2      tablespoons   lemon juice
   1      teaspoon      ground cinnamon
   1                    egg -- lightly beaten
     1/3  cup           evaporated milk
   1      teaspoon      vanilla extract
     3/4  cup           chopped nuts
   1 1/3  cups          flaked coconut

In a bowl, combine flour, salt and 1/3 cup sugar. Cut in butter until
the mixture resembles fine crumbs; press into the bottom of a greased
13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan. Arrange the apple slices on top of
crumbs; sprinkle with lemon juice. Combine 1/3 cup sugar with cinnamon;
sprinkle over apples. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small
bowl, combine remaining sugar with the rest of the ingredients. Spoon
over baked apples; bake for another 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Cut into squares while still warm. Yield: about 20 servings.
