I was making a coconut pie for Thanksgiving, and I wanted to add a little something, something to it. I wasn't sure what so I found this. I used Chocolate Graham Crackers. OH man was it the extra kick that it needed. I did have to add quite a bit more butter to it to get it to hold together, yet it was just what the pie needed.

Good crust! I toasted the coconut a little bit before adding it, and I also had to add more butter- probably about 4-5T total, and it was still a little dry, but it tasted great. I made it for the Key Lime Pie recipe that's on the bottle of Joe and Nellie's Key Lime juice. Topped that w/ whipped cream that I'd added 3T of instant vanilla pudding to... turned out really delicious!

Poor recipe<br/>What is 1/8 stick cup butter?<br/>It turned out it requires a stick of butter.<br/>How hard is that ?<br/>After baking for 10 minutes (not 7) the recipe came out fine

I was making Super Easy Coconut Cream Pie for our Valentine's Day dinner at church and was having an awful time with my regular pie crust recipe so I decided that I needed a graham cracker crust for the second pie. Because I can't have wheat, I substituted crushed up cookie crumbs for the graham crackers and like another reviewer did need additional butter to make the crust stick together a little better. But all, in all this was a good crust and I will use it again. Thanks for posting this.

I had to keep adding butter to get it sticky enough to press into the pan. I think I ended up using a little less than 1/4 c, but I think I should have used more, as it was still pretty dry. I baked it longer than it said and it was still just soft. I like my crusts on the crunchy side. My husband liked it though, because of the coconut...

I used this when I made a recipe calling for a coconut macaroon pie crust. I couldn't find coconut macaroons that I wanted to use in their recipe, so I used this recipe instead. It was a raspberry cheesecake pie, and it turned out pretty good. The crust was much better than the cheesecake!

Yummy! I made this with Low Fat Low Calorie Cool 'n Easy Pie!, Low Fat Low Calorie Cool 'n Easy Pie, using this crust instead of the pre-prepared one called for in the recipe. I also used regular Jello. As good as the pie filling was, this crust stole the show; it was absolutely delicious! Mmmmmmmm!! I can't wait to make this again, and next time I'm going to try a coconut cream pie. This recipe was a snap to make, too. Thanks for posting. Recipes like this show me yet again why I love the 'zaar so much.

Yummy! I used this for my tofu pie recipe and used unsweetened coconut from the health food store adding a little sugar to the recipe. It is a delicious crust. Thanks for sharing!

In one word: PERFECT! This is exactly what I was searching for!! I wanted something other than an ordinary graham cracker crust for my banana cream pie and I FOUND IT!! This pie crust was superb, I am very impressed with this! Extremely easy; I did, however, add a little more butter to the mix to moisten a bit. This is the ONLY graham cracker pie crust I will use :)
