Pie Crust:
Combine flour and salt in bowl. Add shortening or butter and blend with fork or pastry cutter until mixture is fairly coarse.

Line 9-inch pie pan. Flute edges. Chill until use.

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Melt the margarine and set aside.

Combine the sugar and baking cocoa in a bowl. Stir in the evaporated
milk, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla. Blend well.

Stir in the coconut and pecans and turn into two unbaked pie shells. Bake in a 350 degree F. oven for about 40 minutes.

Cool on racks.
