“Toasted Coconut Cream Pie is our twist on traditional coconut cream pie. Silky coconut cream custard is folded with toasted coconut. Then, it's piled high with fresh whipped cream and sprinkles of toasted coconut. This luxurious, yet rustic, dessert will never go out of style. Serve for a holiday dessert or when a cream pie craving hits. It's rich and creamy with a lightly toasted coconut flavor that's irresistible.” - Kitchen Crew
“I wanted to make something different. While pies are my specialty, I hadn't ever made a coconut pie. I went in search. I couldn't find any one recipe that ringed my chimes, so I grabbed bits and pieces from 4 or 5 other recipes and this is what I made. My family is quite happy with it.” - Penny
