I first had this pie at our favorite bed and breakfast the Whitestone County Inn in Kingston Tennessee. At the Whitestone this is their signature dessert and they call it Whitestone Delight Pie. I order it for dessert every time we go there and have since made it myself. It is excellent and so easy to make! It is more than delightful; it s divine decadent and delicious!! 9/13/10 UPDATE I made this again for a dinner party for 14 people. I made a graham cracker crust in my 10 springform pan. I made all of the filling and all of the coconut/pecan mixture. Worked perfectly. I cut this into 16 servings so they were a modest size but that s probably a good thing because this is so rich! It was a hit! One suggestion: Take this out of the freezer about 20 minutes before serving. If you allow this to thaw completely it becomes too loose and sort of sags on the plate and doesn t hold it s shape. Still yummy but not as pretty. Read More

I made one pie for Mother's Day and made it that morning. Everyone LOVED this dessert, and some went back for seconds! Having 1 extra slice left over, I had that the next day. THERE WAS A BIG DIFFERENCE IN THE TEXTURE. IT WASN'T BAD ON MOTHER'S DAY, BUT SEEING THE DIFFERENCE ON MONDAY - I WOULD DEFINATELY MAKE THIS PIE THE NIGHT BEFORE FOR THE BETTER TEXTURE AFTER YOU CUT A SLICE! Read More

Great recipe except I omitted the caramel. The first time I made the pies I actually forgot the caramel on one so I ended up doing one pie with the caramel and the other without. After reading the reviews saying it was too sweet I have to agree. The caramel one was much too sweet but the other was perfect! I use the recipe now to make a coconut and pecan cream pie. Everyone has loved it and asked me for the recipe!! If you think it's too sweet just don't add the caramel... delicious!!! Read More

A friend brought this to an office luncheon & it was such a treat! She used a graham cracker crust which went well with the other flavors. I want to try making it in a 9x13 pan cutting into small squares for serving -- it is very rich so I think small servings would work. Read More

A very rich wonderful pie. I used low-fat cream cheese and cut the recipe in half to make just one pie - it turned out wonderfully. I did not use as much caramel as called for and it was still VERY sweet. Save a little caramel to drizzle over the top of each slice when you serve it. I considered using a graham crust as some reviews suggested but I think the added sweetness would be too much. Read More

This is a fabulous pie!! I first made this for a dinner party at my home and it was sure a hit! My husband loved it and has requested it several times since. I like coconut only when it is toasted. and I love caramel. Yes it is sweet but it is PIE for heavens sake! The full recipe fits nicely in a 9 x 13 pan using a graham cracker or butter/cookie crust.

I made this for Christmas. I found it really really sweet. I also think it would be better with a graham wafer crust. If I make this again I would cut back on the caramel topping and use as many light or fat-free ingredients as I can as suggested by another reviewer. Read More

Having just finished eating the first slice of this pie I'm wondering if I've just sinned or died and gone to heaven.:) One thing I am sure of...if you like the sound of this pie you'll LOVE the flavor! Read More

I made this with a few modifications: I made one pie using a reduced fat graham cracker crust 8 oz. light cream cheese a container of light Cool Whip and 1/3 cup of sugar for the base. My husband and I really enjoyed it. I prefered it the second and third days when it had a chance to firm up. I think in the future I may try with different fruits - or even just omitting the coconut and adding sliced banana could be good. Read More
