This is a no-bake, semi-frozen pie. The only "cooking" required is toasting the coconut. I just took it to a family reunion 4th of July picnic where there was tons of food - there was nothing left to take home except the pie server. I did not use the "extra serving size" pie crust and there was plenty of filling for 2 regular size pies - just add a little extra whipped topping before serving. Also, next time I make this recipe, I think I will cut each mandarin orange in half. I think it will distribute more evenly in the pie and won't be such a large frozen bite. I did leave out the maraschino cherries - 'cause my honey hates them. I crumbled up the pecan halves on top instead of leaving them whole.
