Pies & Pastries
-----CREAM CHEESE PASTRY-----

Arrange apples in unbaked pie shell. Combine sugar, flour, and salt;
sprinkle over apples, mixing well. Cover with coconut, sprinkle
vanilla over top, and dot with margarine.
Roll out remaining pastry, and place over filling; seal and flute
edges. Cut slits in top to allow steam to escape. Bake at 400 degrees
for 10 minutes; reduce heat to 300 degrees and bake an additional 35
to 40 minutes.
