This was easy to make, kept my kitchen relatively cool, and was soooo delicious! My husband and I loved it.
I've made this a few times! It's awesome. Has anyone tried to double the recripe and make it in a 9x13? I'm going to make it for a crowd.
Hi John, we haven't tested doubling this recipe in the Test Kitchens, but would encourage you to try at home! We think trying it in a 13x9-inch pan is a great idea. Let us know how it turns out for you!
Fun and strait forward to put together. Only problem with the recipe is that there wasn't enough coconut mixture to completely cover my 9 inch pie pan, so I had to mix up about half a cup more.
Made this pie yesterday as a practice for a gift next week and it is great. Perfect.
Land O Lake is very good . I love to use it. Makes your food better
