    i really liked the flavor of this crust, but mine didn't hold together at all. i followed the directions exactly, so i can't imagine what went wrong....maybe more butter would hold it together?

    excellent crust- such a nice change from using astandard graham cracker crumb, like previous reviewer i used it with the key lime pie- i need to say though that i only toasted the nuts and coconut for 5 minutes- when i went to stir it, it was already starting to get real brown. i used sweetened coconut, so maybe that is why

    WOW this was really good - topped it with Key Lime Pie (#41575) and Vanilla Whipped Cream (#74805) and it was a perfect combination! A couple notes: (1) Don't bake the graham cracker crumbs - only the coconut and pecans - the graham crumbs burned for me and I started over. (2) Make sure the coconut and pecans are chopped well - it makes it much easier to pack into the pie pan. Mine was a bit chunky!
