Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 cups flour
4 tablespoons sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 stick plus 2 1/2 tablespoons margarine
4 eggs -- beaten
1 cup almonds -- chopped
2 cups light brown sugar -- firmly packed
3 cups sweetened flaked coconut
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons lime zest

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine flour, sugar, and salt in a bowl. Cut in margarine until mixture resembles coarse meal. Press crust into ungreased 10 by 15-inch baking pan. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Mix eggs, nuts, brown sugar, and coconut until well blended; spread over baked crust.
Bake an additional 30 minutes or until set.

While still warm, loosen the edges with a metal spatula. Mix together the powdered sugar, lime juice, and zest with a fork. Working quickly, spread the lime paste all over the top with a spatula while still warm. Let cool to room temperature and cut into bars. Cut 11 cuts crosswise and 3 cuts lengthwise.
