This is very rich and sooo good -- and so easy! My father-in-law is visiting & loves coconut pie. During his last visit, I tried making a coconut cream pie. It was one of those recipes that required stirring a concoction over the stove. I stirred for what seemed like an hour and the stuff never did thicken (ARGH)! This was easy to put together & came out perfectly. The coconut mixed in the filling rises to the top during baking and makes a thin, sweet, slightly crisp top. YUMMMMM!

I love coconut pie, Debster and this recipe is a winner! I prepared this recipe as directed, and used Mean Chef's recipe for Classic Pie Crust. The combination is perfect! I would not change a thing. Thanks for sharing!

Delicious! It was so good! I actually changed the recipe just slightly because I don't like super sweet pies. I followed everything in the directions, except I used a little over 3/4 c sugar and probably a little under 1/4 c flour, and 2 tsp of vanilla. Okay, sorry my ability to follow directions to a T has gone by the way side for some reason. But either way; if you like a less sweet pie, this was great. I got tons of compliments at the party, no one left a crumble on the plate. So thank you Debster!!

I made this pie for my BH today. I don't like coconut cream pie as a rule. But the smell was awesome as it was baking and I tried a piece of it. I have to say I think you may have converted me. This pie was great. I made the pie exactly as posted but was not sure how much 3 1/2 oz. of coconut was, so I used 3/4 of a cup. That seemed to be perfect. Thanks for the great recipe. Rita

I have made my coconut pie for years, and it always gets noticed.....I do think that this is MUCH better than mine, I will be making this many times. Thank you for the great recipe. I did not change a thing! It does not even need whipped cream

I made this pie for the second time today. It has been great both times. My cousin tasted it and declared it "luscious". It reminds me of the coconut pie I had in the Bahamas on Harbour Island. Wonderful memories!! Thank you so much.

Oh my goodness, this pie was absolutely wonderful! Wanted to make something different for my parents anniversary and this was great! Can't believe that the hardest part was making a crust. Thanks a lot for this super recipe that I permanently add to my archives. My husband has already requested it for his birthday!:)
