I made some major changes to this recipe since I'd tagged it for the ZWT5 Caribbean Dessert Challenge #2 ~ Instead of using the 2 cups of strawberries, I substituted a cup of diced & sliced mango & a similar amount of papaya! The recipe was pretty much followed, but in place of the berries I processed/blended a cup of my fruit combo & layered another cup of it in the last step! I did, however, include the strawberries as an optional side, one large halved strawberry per slice ('cause I liked the added color)! VERY NICE TASTING PIE!
Made when my inlaws were coming and everyone dug in and cleaned their plate in about 1 minute, or should I say inhaled! Served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side, and it was a big hit! Thanks for this one Boomette!
This is an amazing pie Boomie. Well worth the extra effort and love to make. The coconut cream is devine and easy to make, I used mandarin oranges in place of pineapple tidbits, I didn't have any...but followed the rest of the recipe as written. The strawberrys and strawberry sauce compliment the crisp pastry and coconut cream beautifully. A very pretty pie that I will make again and again. Kudos...BK
