I have won high praise from this "Amazing Coconut Creme Pie" from seasoned pie bakers!  It has the deep nutty flavor of toasted coconut in the filling and is not as chewy as most coconut pies.  ~ Amber S.

1 15 oz can coconut creme (not coconut milk) Can be found in the section with the
margarita mix
