Reviews for Coconut Cream Pie
"This pie is amazing! It's so easy too. I will make this again & again!"
"This was the best Coconut Cream Pie that I ever tasted. I was skeptical at first because it did not have a meringue, but it did not need it. I used half-n-half instead of milk, my own crust & coconut cream pudding. Awesome!"
"After 28 years, my husband said I had finally made the best coconut pie with this recipe. I did change the pudding to coconut pudding and use only one pie shell for this."
"This recipe is so yummy. My husband says he could eat it every day and he does not like coconut as much as I do. I made these pies for a birthday party and they were a big hit."
"I love this recipe. I am going to make it again soon. I use regular pie crust though.It was such a hit when I made for some friends last week!"
