I do a lot of quantity cooking, for about 50-75 people. This recipe worked GREAT to multiply to feed hungry young men! I needed about 60-70 servings. I multiplied the recipe by six and bought twelve frozen pre-made pie crusts (not deep dish). Note that means each recipe fills two pie crusts. I pre-baked the pie crusts on huge cookie sheets (best if you line them with foil to simplify cleanup) for about 10 minutes, till the crust was solidified but not browned. In making the batter, I reduced the amount of sugar by one-third, following other reviewers. I poured the batter into the baked pie shells, then sprinkled about 2 ounces of coconut on top of each pie. I covered the whole cookie sheet with foil and baked till they were puffy and golden. Absolutely delicious and very easy, plus a pretty cheap way to feed a very yummy dessert to a crowd! By my estimate, those 72 servings (a sixth of a pie) cost a total of about $23 to make (including the pie shells and coconut), so that's about 32 cents a serving to make. Quite a bargain for something so rich and delicious! If you wanted to add to it, you COULD add whipped cream but this pie stands very well on its own!
