Recipe by Manami
This dessert is reminiscent of pecan pie. Cooking Light, April 2004. We didn't use coconut -- personal preference so increased the amount of chopped pecans. Didn't allow for chilling and cooling times.

I made this for my family. I used only whole wheat matzo meal (no cake meal) substitute applesauce for butter and also skipped the egg white in the crust. All enjoyed it! Thanks!
