Coconut Pineapple Bars

1/2 cup margarine -- not diet
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 pounds crushed pineapple
1 large egg
1 tablespoon margarine
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 1/2 ounces dried coconut

Combine 1/2 cup softened margarine and 1/4 cup sugar in a small bowl. Beat with an electric mixer set on medium speed until mixture is light and fluffy. Gradually beat in flour to form a soft dough.

Press dough evenly on bottom and 1/2 inch up sides of 9 x 9 x 1-3/4 inch ungreased pan. Bake in preheated 350-degree oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool.

Drain pineapple VERY thoroughly. Spread pineapple over crust.

Add rest of sugar to egg; beat until just blended. Add 1 tablespoon melted margarine, vanilla and coconut. Spread mixture over pineapple. Bake 20 minutes longer, or until top is golden brown. Cool, then cut into 1-1/2 inch squares.

Yield: about 3 dozen.
