The was the perfect dessert for our Mother's Day cook-out!!! I did save some time by purchasing a shortbread crust at the store but, it was still a wonderful dessert! Everyone raved!!!
I made this and it is pie to die for, I will make this agian and agian. Thanks Marie Do you have any more good secrets.
Tropical goodness in a pie plate! Made this yesterday for Sunday evening dessert. It was soooo good and the crust! Wow, it was fantastic. The whole family loved it, even those not terribly fond of coconut. Only needed 12-14 cookies to make 1.5 cups for the crust and only used 1/2 cup coconut in the pudding mixture. My husband is a take it or leave it coconut eater so I didn't want to overwhelm him with it. Turned out, to me anyway, 1/2 cup gave it just the right balance of creamy pudding to coconut. Thanks so much for the great recipe. I can tell I'll be making this one over and over again.
