WHOA MAMA does this sound good. Looking forward to giving this crust a try, I've never seen one like this. I agree with you, I like Eagle Brand SCM, buy WHY OH WHY does it have to be so DARNED PRICEY? I'll make this when my sister comes to visit. Her hubby LOVES coconut and she HATES it. DANG I'm EVIL, but it will leave more for her hubby, the Lad and myself...GRIN ;) CHEERS, CC

Thanks Pat, I did get those recipes you sent to me. I have made my own in the past, and it was easy. Perhaps I should quit whinning and just make it. For some reason I don't recall our $ store carrying this but believe me, next time I go I'll be looking for it. THANK YOU! CC
