The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth. Psalm 145:18
The bottom layer of this is the tastiest crust! And it is very easy to make. You could use this crust for many different pies, or squares. The recipe is from a cookbook that Grammy gave us printed by the Nottawasaga Golf Club in Alliston, Ontario, titled "Recipes for Golfers".

    Add the pecans and coconut, stir to combine.
