    1 1/2  cups          all-purpose flour
      1/2  cup           powdered sugar
      3/4  cup           butter or margarine -- cold
    1      tablespoon    cornstarch
    3      tablespoons   amaretto -- to 4 tablespoons
   14      ounces        sweetened condensed milk
    1      cup           semisweet chocolate chips
    1 1/2  cups          sweetened coconut flakes
      1/2  cup           almonds -- sliced
 
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees; grease a 13 x 9 x 2-inch
 baking pan.  In a large bowl, combine the flour and sugar.
 With a pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in the butter until
 crumbly.  Press the mixture firmly in the prepared pan.
 Bake for 20 minutes.  Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir the
 cornstarch into the amaretto until dissolved; stir in the
 condensed milk.  Pour the mixture evenly over the prebaked
 crust.  Top with the chocolate chips, coconut and almonds;
 press down firmly.  Bake for 25 to 30 minutes longer, or
 until golden brown.  Cool in the pan on a wire rack.
 Refrigerate until ready to serve.
