I got this recipe from my best friend, Dawn. She MUST make this at least once if not more every summer for our get togethers.

She got the recipe from an old church cookbook and it is to die for!

You can toast the coconut or not, it is delicious either way. Oh, and feel free to use as MUCH coconut as you please.....LOL
