<p>For crust, combine flour and brown sugar. Cut in shortening until fine crumbs form and add 1/2 cup of nuts to crust, and 1/2 of the coconut into crust mixture. Mix well and remove 1/2 cup of the crust mixture and set aside with the remaining nuts and coconut. This will be used for the topping. Press the crust mixture into a pie pan. Bake for 10 minutes, or light golden brown.</p>
