I used coconut cream pudding instead of the vanilla pudding and heavy whipping cream whipped up with two tablespoons of granulated sugar instead of the coolwhip type cream. I also roasted about a half cup coconut on a preheated baking sheet to sprinkle on the top. It was great and I received lots of compliments. Too easy to be this YUMMY!!!

I really liked this but my husband did not. He did not like the coconut sprinkled on top. Definitely use coconut pudding otherwise your pie will taste like vanilla pudding w/coconut. I could not find coconut pudding so I used vanilla but added 3 tsp. of coconut extract. I also toasted the coconut sprinkled on top of the pie to add color and used a graham cracker crust. I served this to 2 other people who did not offer any comments but did clean their plates. I doubt I'll make this again since my husband did not care for it.

I just made this pie and I had to run to the computer to post my review. This pie is fantastic!!!! I had a craving for coconut cream pie after catching a little bit of a "Gilligans Island" re-run the other day. I remembered how easy this recipe seemed and grabed the ingredients at the store today. I used canned cocount milk instead of regular milk to kick up the cocount factor a little and it came out great!!! I will make this recipe all the time now!!! So easy and so tasty!!! Yummm

I recently made this for a PTA appreciation lunch and boy did they appreciate it! IT ROCKED! There is not an easier recipe for this out there and it yields bakery tasting results!!! I would DEFINITELY recommend using coconut flav. instant pudding rather than vanilla (I followed this advice after reading other posts...thanks.) I toasted coconut and sprinkled that atop the pie and I also piped whip cream around the was beautiful and EASY AS PIE!!! MAKE THIS PIE!! :)

Wonderful! I have made this 3 times now. Each time I use 2 small (3.5 oz ) packages of coconut instant pudding instead of a 5oz. (couldn't find) and I think it helps the pie really firm up. I didn't prebake the crust and did let it sit overnight. It's a nice treat when you are looking for something sweet that isn't chocolate. I won't bother making one from "scratch." Everyone already thinks it is!

First of all, I have to admit that I do not eat coconut so this review is based solely on the other members of my family. I used the cocunut pudding as suggested and they raved about this pie which I could not believe because it was too easy! I took it to a family gathering and it has been requested for every get together after.

I made this pie for my husband's birthday since he LOVES coconut cream pie. He said it was the very best pie he had ever enjoyed. I did replace the vanilla pudding for coconut as recommeded by others, as well as adding a splash of vanilla extract. A true keeper.

I made this with a few variatons. I used 2 small boxes of instant coconut creme pudding,I couldn't find any 5 oz. boxes. I still used the same amount of milk, and I used french vanilla cool-whip. I took one other persons advice and didn't put the toasted coconut on until I served it. Absolutely wonderful!!!
