Given to me by my SIL, this recipe is so easy and makes its own crust, too! Everyone who like coconut loves it. This pie freezes well and makes nice holiday gifts.

So good and so easy. I also liked having another pie for the freezer for another day.
Didn't know what I was going to think about this one...never had a coconut pie that made its own crust! I'm convinced! Really great recipe and my dad, the coconut lover, took the 2nd pie home with him! Thank you for sharing!
