I tasted this light dessert 7 years ago at a potluck and got the recipe from my mom's dear friend. I've made it dozens of times since for my family and friends, who go wild over it. This is a terrific way to end a heavy meal. -Debby Chiorino, Pt. Hueneme, CA

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 1-1/4 cups flaked coconut
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar

  • 2 packages (3.4 ounces each) instant vanilla pudding mix

  1. In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients; press lightly into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown, stirring every 10 minutes to form coarse crumbs. Cool.

We love this. I have made it for years.

This was very good. If I make it again I would cut the pudding and whip cream amounts in half and use a 8 x 8 pan for more coconut crunch.

Have made it many times and it is a real winner. Very, very easy and many recipe requests.

I made this for my pinochle group and they loved it.  I did it  a little differently and it turned out great.  I put some coconut crunch in a goblet, added the pudding mixture and topped it with more of the coconut crunch.  Theywere very pretty and made a great dessert. I've given out the recipe whenever I serve it to anyone.
