I made this tonight for my family's dessert. I didn't have any pecans, so left those out, but followed the recipe otherwise. I chose to toast the coconut while baking the dish since I didn't have any pretoasted coconut on hand, so I sprinkled it on during the last 5 minutes. It browned beautifully while in the oven, making it crispy. I served the dish with a dollop of Cool Whip on top. My kids and husband raved about this dish! They all gobbled it up, and said I should make it again! The best part about this recipe is how speedily I could put it together and pop it in the oven. My husband, creative guy that he is, said a dash of brandy would probably taste great in this dish too. I think that it would taste good with fresh orange juice in place of the lemon juice if you didn't have lemon juice.
