Excellent pie as is. I made it per the recipe. I agree that it's a custard pie, like some of the reviewers said, but a great custard nevertheless. I put the custard mix in a glass bowl in the microwave and did the 5 minutes stirring each 60 seconds; turned out perfect this way, and much quicker and less mess to clean up. I think next time I make it I will add at least another 1/2 cup of sweetened coconut, and maybe coconut milk in place of some milk for more flavor. I saved the 4 egg whites and made a meringue to go on top of the pie. Very, very good!
UPDATE: 2nd pie made with 1 c. coconut milk + 2 c. half and half. Also increased the coconut to 1.5 cups. I liked the first pie with 3 c. milk better; this was rich and thick, but it was too much for me. I did like the extra 1/2 c. flaked coconut in the filling, however.
