Reviews for Coconut-Pineapple Sherbet Torte
"This is really a nice blend of tropical flavors. I took it to a Luau and everyone raved! I doubled the recipe and made it in a spring form pan to serve approx. 20. I used pecan sandie cookies but did not double the cookie amount and it was just enough cookie layer.I love that you can make this recipe days/weeks ahead and it is ready when you need it. When using the spring form pan, I still lined the pan with plastic wrap and then flipped the cake on to a platter to serve."
