This was quite a delicious pie, though I did reduce the number of peaches called for. I found that 8 cups of peaches created a towering mountain leaning out of the pie pan: I simply removed some until it came out about level. I also must admit I thought that the cooking time on the second half of the recipe was incorrect (I thought it would burn after 30 more minutes in the oven), but indeed I cooked the streusel for almost 25 minutes longer with great results. While I did use fresh, ripe peaches for this, it didn't come out quit as 'juicy' as I had hoped... but that sure didn't stop me (or anybody else for that matter) for going back for seconds. ;)

A very delectable topping here! I must say, compared to many other pies this one was a bit more involved and took more time to make, but I love to bake as a hobby so for me this was not an issue. For someone who wants a quick and easy pie, I wouldn't recommend this recipe but for everyone else I say go for it! The coconut was a fantastic twist.

Wow - this is a great pie! I had a tray of peaches I needed to use up fast, and this sounded like a good recipe based on the ingredients. It was a huge hit with my family and friends!
