MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 3, 2012

haven't made it, and don't plan on doing so. sounds really good, but i am diabetic and watch my carbs and one piece of this pie is more that I can eat for a meal plus a snack. please publish diabetic friendly pies like this. surely it could be made more diabetic friendly??

My mom actually made this, and I loved it! We have tried quite a few new desserts this year and so far this has been the best. The coconut is my favorite part, and the rest of my family was really impressed with how well the orange went with the whole thing. Very easy to make too. We decided to make this a new addition to our Thanksgiving menu every year!
