Wow - what a difference between home-made coconut pudding vs. pudding from that little box! Which is basically what the creamy, coconutty filling is! DH and I both loved it! made for ZWT9 Soup-a-Stars
When making this pie I was generous with the coconut in the filling (used a nicely rounded half cup!) but otherwise followed the recipe (using unsweetened coconut) & the pie was DELICIOUS, absolutely! A great keeper of a recipe, too! Thanks for posting it! [Made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hits recipe tag]
Great pie! I also used unsweetened coconut, so had no problem with it being too sweet. Coconut Cream Pie has always been a favorite of mine, but hadn't made one with meringue for years (usually just use whipped topping), but will be making it this way more often. I made this for the Gluten-free challenge in ZWT 7, so used a gluten-free ready-made pie crust.
Delicious pie. I used unsweetened coconut and did not find the pie to be too sweet. I'm a poor photographer, so my photo doesn't do justice to what a pretty pie this recipe made.
This is a delightful pie that disappeared in no time! I have not made a meringue pie in ages, and I'm glad I did. It really complements the coconut cream. The only thing I might do next time is to make some adjustments on the sugar. This pie was quite sweet. However, I did notice that my coconut flakes are sweetened (I'm not sure if you can buy unsweetened). Given that, I think the sugar in the filling and meringue could be reduced (according to personal taste). I think this would make a pretty pie for Easter! Thanks for sharing this.
