I made this pie for Christmas and it was the first pie that was gone. My family loved it! I made a regular pie crust and it was very good. I was surpised to find that I had enough mix to make two pies, so I did. I used the vanilla wafer crust for the second one and it was just as good as the regular pie crust.

The recipe turned out great. I made a homemade crust to go with it instead of the graham-cracker crust and it tastes great. Next time, though, I think I will cut way back on the almond flavor. It's pretty strong and a little too strong for my husband's liking. Otherwise, great pie!!

Delicious pie!! So good. Creamy, fluffy and coconutty. I have also made it with a chocolate cookie crumb crust and drizzled a chocolate ganache on top. A great treat for the chocolate coconut lovers.

Made this for Thanksgiving Dinner - a wonderful addition to the dinner. I will make it again. Love the vanilla wafer crust. I didn't have any gelatin and used corn starch instead and it worked fine except was a little runny. But it was tasty enough that I'll definitely make it again.
