This pie has a filling similar to a pecan pie, then you add the golden raisins, coconut, and pecans. I put the whole filling in a 9x9 square dish and baked at a lower temperature for longer, and loved the result. Also tried this in a deep pie dish and it turned out very well. When cooked to perfection, pie has a light golden-brown top to it. TIP: Watch closely in oven and check often. A normal depth pie dish will be done before the stated time window. Once the pie is set in the middle, pull out, because it burns quickly afterwards.

One of my family's favorite pies! In the South where I grew up, I have heard this pie called Japanese Fruit Pie and Oh-So-Good Pie.It's basically a golden chess pie filling chockful of good things like raisins, pecans, and coconuts. Very toothsome, very satisfying.

I added slivered almonds with the pecans and used almond extract instead of vanilla! Wow! tasted like a macaroon. Super easy and tasty!

Delicious. I added twice as many pecans as the recipe requested because the filling was a little skimpy to me. Also, the additional pecans made it less sweet which worked out perfect for us.

VERY delicious, and seems to be adaptable. Tastes a bit like chess pie, but more complex. I cut down the vanilla to 2t instead of 1T and substituted regular raisins in lieu of golden and it was all good. Other tips: do NOT make this into two pies. I had two deep dish 9" pies and split the batter, then rolled the crust down to the edge of the batter. If you combined into one large pie the top would burn before the middle set, and it's such a rich pie that you wouldn't really want to have a super deep slice. This would go very well with vanilla ice cream. I thought the lemon juice ingredient would impart some lemon flavor - it didn't, and next time I make this I'll be adding some lemon zest and removing the raisins altogether.

The recipe is very easy to put together. I had 2 9" pie shells ready, but there was only enough for one pie shell, so I had to make another recipe. I added 1 T orange juice concentrate in place of the lemon juice. Yum!
