"Absolutely wonderful, & definitely something I'd make again! Loved the coconut throughout, & although I'm not usually one to make meringue for a pie, I did so this time & it was delicious! This recipe goes into my favorites file! Thanks so much for posting it! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Stars recipe tag]"
"So good! I almost didn`t get to taste this! It disssapeared so fast I got to scrap some for the dish! I made this for the glutin free challange ZWT 2011. Stirring together the 1/2 cup gluten-free flour, 1/2 cup gluten free almond meal, 2 tablespoons sweet rice flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons of sugar and 1/8 teaspoon of salt. Cut 6 tablespoons butter into chunks and, using your fingertips, work the butter into the dry ingredients to form a coarse meal. Make a well. Break the egg into the well. Add the 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Use a fork to stir from the center, working the flour into the egg to form a soft dough. Shape into a disk and chill in the freezer for 15 minutes. Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease a pie pan and press the pastry into it in an even layer. If the dough seems very sticky, put a piece of parchment paper on top and pat it out to smooth, then remove it. Bake for 12 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. The crust didn`t work. No fault of the recipe. Thanks."
"I thought that 1 1/2 cup of sugar in the pie was a little too much. So I used 1 cup but maybe I'd try with only 1/2 cup cause it's really sweet. But I'm glad I like sweet pie LOL I used butter in the pie. It's really easy to do. Thanks Breezermom for posting a yummy coconut pie. :) Made for PRMR tag game"
"This is delicious! One of my favorite pies and this one is very simple. I just sprinkled the top with coconut because I don't really care for meringue! Thanks for sharing!"
"I cut the recipe in half and made 3 small pies with some leftover for a small bowl. One of the best coconut pie I have ever had. This is going in my Divine recipes of 2009 CB Made for Everyday is a Holiday Tag March 2009"
"Lovely pie. Made for our Christmas Party yesterday, if you love coconut, this is a very good rich pie."
