I found this recipe in a local neighborhood news publication about 5 years ago. I've made some changes to suit my taste (added the coconut, toasted the coconut and oatmeal)and the result is this rich tasty pie with a wonderful nutty flavor. I serve it sprinkled with confectioner's sugar and a dollop of whipped cream.
