I like to garnish slices of this smooth, silky pie with coconut shavings for a fun, tropical flair. —Kristine Fry, Fennimore, Wisconsin

"I made this pie for Thanksgiving, needless to say I was embarrassed when I tasted it myself. It was the worst, tasteless, pie I have ever made. I don't know what it was missing but it had no taste but nasty. It needs some taste like coconut flavoring, the coconut itself did nothing to the taste. Yuck, I won't be using this again."

"I love this recipe. This was the first homemade pie that I had ever made and found it to be very easy to do. The only thing I changed was that I don't use as much salt as it calls for. I did the first time and found it to be a little too salty."
