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
