Fantastic pie!! I used 1 cup coconut milk and 1 cup 2% milk. I also increased the coconut to 1 cup. My husband said it's the best coconut cream pie he's ever had :)

Went by the recipe exactly. My pie was beautiful when it came out of the oven, but it never "set up". I refrigerated it for 3 hours before serving. It ran all over the plate. It was like coconut soup. It was very tasty, but I was really disappointed. I may try it one more time. I may not use 2 full cups of milk and I may add more coconut.
