Coconut Pistachio Pie

We simply loved the lightly toasted coconut crust that paired so well with the pale green pistachio pudding in this quick pie. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

    I submitted this pie for a church pie contest and although we didn't win, it was auctioned off at the highest price of all the pies! It presents nicely, however there is an awful lot of coconut...

    Not being rude or snippy, but in answer to jeepyj's question, I would think any such crust would get soggy in a few days. I might make the night before, but not much more than that.

    My husband loves pistachio cake so I made this to surprise him with something a little different. We both loved it. The coconut crust was unbelievably good and paired with the pistachio filling and cool whip.....absolutely yummy. I have shared this recipe with others and I will definitely make it again.
