Delicious and easy, very coconutty, the hardest part was juicing almost an entire bag of Key limes! I found unsweetened coconut in the freezer section of my local Indian grocer. I'm not quite sure if I assembled it correctly; I guess I need to find the Harley Brachman episode on Gale Gand's Sweet Dreams show. My bottom crust went up the sides. My second crust was concentrated on the sides but also spread across the bottom. At any rate, my filling fit in perfectly, and it tasted great! Made for Best of 2013 tag, based on Maito's recommendation.
I have been wanting to make this ever since I saw Wayne Harley Brachman make it on Gale Gand's Sweet Dreams show years ago, and it was really delicious. I made half a recipe in a loaf pan, used regular limes, and cut back on the sweetened condensed milk 25% so it wouldn't be too sweet. I ended up baking the crust 6 extra minutes, since I was looking for the top edge to start lightly browning like it did on the show. It is kind of like lime curd on a macaroon! Coconut and lime are a great pair, so you really can't go wrong.
this recipe is easy delicious! dh is allergic to coconut so I used graham cracker crust. Yummy!!
