How to Make It

Step 1

Melt butter in a large skillet. Add coconut and 1/2 cup pecans; cook until golden, stirring frequently. Set mixture aside and let cool slightly.

Step 2

Combine cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk; beat at medium speed of an electric mixer until smooth. Fold in whipped topping.

Step 3

Layer 1/4 of cream cheese mixture in each pastry shell. Drizzle 1/4 of caramel topping over each pie. Sprinkle 1/4 coconut mixture evenly over each pie.

Step 4

Repeat layers with remaining cream cheese mixture, caramel topping, and coconut mixture. Cover and freeze pies at least 8 hours.

Step 5

Let frozen pies stand at room temperature 5 minutes before slicing. Garnish, if desired.
