Made this 3 weeks ago. Custard is wonderful. Crust makes it have coconut overload. Am making it today for company and using regular crust. Should be wonderful!

There is way to much coconut in this pie. So much that its like chewing on a handful of coconut, Next time I wouldn't put nearly as much as the recipe calls for. The custard filling is really delicious but was ruined by the amount of coconut.

It came out well! I think I might like a regular baked crust better - not sure - I had to cook this one about 10 minutes longer than the recipe said - the custard is great.

I made this pie for Easter last year for my family and there was actually a fight over the last piece! Now I know to make two when it comes to this pie.

FYI- it IS called DOUBLE coconut cream pie for a reason... It's an excellent custard base. Delicious and easy enough to make. It smelled divine. I love coconut so it wasn't a problem. but again- DOUBLE coconut cream pie people- it's not rocket science to figure that out or compare it to a regular recipe.

Consider using a plain crust.

Everyone can tell by the picture what double coconut means. It is indeed way too much coconut to truly enjoy this pie. Go with a regular crust and no more than 1 to 1 1/2 cups coconut in the filling. I promise you will enjoy it much more, unless of course you just enjoy eating nothing but a big wad of coconut. Nasty!!!!!!

I love coconut, and I would not criticize a recipe because I don't care for an ingredient. Thank you for sharing. A crisp coconut crust....I may use this for other fillings!
