Reviews for Can't Miss Coconut Custard Pie
"Excellent pie, my one change is that I toasted the coconut. It was amazing!"
"Everyone loved this and I agree, needs a bigger pie shell."
"Excellent pie - am making again today. Delicious!"
"I made it without a crust and only 1/2 cup sugar. It was so good. If there were a chocolate topping it would taste like a famous candy bar. JPR"
"Coconut would probably be better if toasted first. The filling almost over-flowed my 9.5 inch Deep-dish pie pan; I would recommend making it in a 10 inch deep-dish pan."
