I wanted to love this pie, but it was MUCH too sweet for me and my guests. I may make it again with some major changes. Like another reviewer suggested, I would make this as a thin bar (with a graham cracker bottom) instead of a pie. First, I would lightly salt my pecan/ coconut mixture to tone down the sugary flavor, use more cream cheese (12 oz) and less sweetened condensed milk (8oz). Then I'd mix the coconut/nut mixture in with the cream mixture, spreading a THIN layer over each graham cracker crust. The dessert has a great flavor, but it's simply too sweet and rich for my friends to eat more than a bite. Hopefully the above version will preserve the flavor while making it more palatable.
