This is the best coconut cream pie I have ever eaten. I modified it with Splenda instead of white sugar (increase it to 1 cup, I used unsweetened coconut, and no sugar whipped topping. No one could tell the difference it was wonderful.

If you like very thick, "egg-y", custard-like coconut pie, then this is the pie for you! I do not, so I was dissapointed with this pie. I made it for Thanksgiving and did not get a good response. If you do decide to make it, be sure and turn up the heat or it will never boil! I stood there forever waiting and finally gave up and turned up the heat. :)

My husband requested a coconut cream pie for his birthday. I found this recipe and added a meringue topper. His comment to me was "You outdid yourself with this pie". I will be making this recipe again! Definate hit.

Very good, but I turned the heat up a smidge from the low setting; too much stirring. My husband loved it!

I really like this pie. You really have to keep an eye on it, while the cream is cooking (lots of stirring). The only thing I would change next time is a bit more sugar, I thought the cream filling could have been a little sweeter! I topped this pie with sweetened whipping cream & toasted coconut! This pie will disappear very fast!!

This is the worst coconut pie I have ever tasted in my life. I made it for my son in law's birthday. Everyone hated it.

It took awhile-with all the stirring- but it was worth it. Best coconut cream pie I ever had! I used fat free can milk and skim milk and it was still very rich and creamy.
