I found this didn't make enough crust to thinly line a regular sized Pyrex glass pie plate. I think this recipe should be 'doubled' or 'one and one halved'. I also found that the crust didn't stay on the bottom of my pie. After filling it with filling and baking the pie the crust floated throughout the pie and mixed into the filling. I think this crust should only be used for non-baked pies the kind that you fill and refrigerate not bake. On the positive side this was quick and only two ingredients. Not a lot of butter in it either. Read More

This crust is just too yummy! I used 1 and 1/4 cup of dried unsweetened coconut from the healthfood store and 1/4 cup of the sweetened angel flake coconut. I combined the coconut and butter in my food processor. The crust turned out wonderfully crisp and almost cookie like. (Just not as sweet.) Wonderful with sugar free pudding as a filling. What a treat! Read More

This crust is wonderful! I've used it with the Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie recipe that appears elsewhere on the site. It's a dynamite combo! Read More

this crust is simple and tastes amazing!! The only thing I would do is spray the pie plate with cooking spray..mine stuck a little. Read More

Used this as a crust for low carb chocolate mousse--AWESOME! I toasted it in the oven until it was golden brown all over and it was really good. I used unsweetened coconut and made no changes to the recipe. Read More

Let's start by saying: I love coconut. So I was in heaven. I gave this recipe a four just because it didn't get very crispy. It didn't really matter it just wasn't exactly what I was expecting. I filled it with homemade coconut cream pie and it tasted fabulous. I'll definitely be using it again. Read More
