Coconut pie and cake are my favorite desserts and I am always looking for the best recipes! I actually think the pie could be a little sweeter by adding a couple more tablespoons of sugar but my husband thought it was just right.

This easy coconut pie recipe is incredible. The filling has the perfect creamy texture and the meringue is light and fluffy. Toasted coconut flakes on top add a pop of coconut flavor, but also make the pie look pretty. Each bite is smooth and creamy. It will take you away to a tropical place.
