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!
