  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together cornmeal, sugar, flour, lemon juice, vanilla and margarine. Mix in eggs until well blended. Stir in coconut and pecans. Then pour mixture into pie crust.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 50 to 55 minutes. Be sure to cover pie with foil. Take off foil when there are 10 to 15 minutes left of bake time.
  4. Pie will be somewhat "shaky" when removed from oven, but will firm up as it cools.

I had an extra pie crust and was browsing AllRecipes to find a new pie to try. This recipe caught my eye because these are my three favorite pies! I figured it would be easy to taste the pecan...

I made this pie for a fundraiser at work and the feedback was terrific. It does exactly what the contributer says: combines the best of three Southern pies; pecan, coconut, and chess. It is yumm...
