Serves: 1- 9" Pie Crust
Ingredients
  • Graham Cracker Crumbs 1 cups (100g) (or 1 prepared pie crust)
  • Sweetened Flaked Coconut toasted ½ cup (43g)
  • Granulated Sugar 6 Tablespoons (75g)
  • Unsalted Butter 6 Tablespoons (85g)
Instructions
  1. Melt the butter and then combine all ingredients together in a medium sized mixing bowl.
  2. Mix just until it resembles wet sand and press into the bottom and sides of a 9" pie plate.
  3. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes at 350°F or until just beginning to turn golden brown on the edges
  4. Cool while you prepare the filling
Notes
Store in the refrigerator at all times due to the whipped cream icing, up to 4 days.

The whipped cream icing will begin to breakdown over time, so it is best to consume before the 4th day.

For those using a meringue icing the same rules apply
