Coconut Bars .

Here's another of Melisha's recipes from Church Women United. I didn't like coconut when I was a kid, but I'm a real lover of anything coconut now!

1 white cake mix
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/4 cup sweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup chopped pecans
2 large eggs

1 - 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 & 1/3 cup Sweetened Coconut Flakes, divided
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Mix the crust ingredients and spread in a greased 9 x 13 pan. Dough will be stiff. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. Do not over bake.

Combine the milk, egg, and vanilla. Beat well. Fold in 1 cup coconut and the pecans. Spread evenly over the crust in the pan. Sprinkle the top of cake with the remaining 1/3 cup coconut. Cut into squares.
