This was very easy to make! I picked it because I love coconut & cherries.It was kinda in between a cherry cobbler or a cherry crumb pie! The texture was great and it held together well even when it was warm ! I will be making this agian & it will become a very "Special "dessert in my house! Thank you Martha :

This recipe has such a nice flavor! I used real butter in place of the margarine. The topping turned out a touch dry and was done approximately 5 minutes before hand. Next time I will drizzle a small amount of additional butter on top before baking to ensure a moister topping. Thinking of you, Silent Cricket!

Excellent. I pressed the crumb mixture down into the pan before putting the pie filling in. I also added 1/2 tsp almond flavoring. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly.
