This pie has a filling similar to a pecan pie then you add the golden raisins coconut and pecans. I put the whole filling in a 9x9 square dish and baked at a lower temperature for longer and loved the result. Also tried this in a deep pie dish and it turned out very well. When cooked to perfection pie has a light golden-brown top to it. TIP: Watch closely in oven and check often. A normal depth pie dish will be done before the stated time window. Once the pie is set in the middle pull out because it burns quickly afterwards. Read More

One of my family's favorite pies! In the South where I grew up I have heard this pie called Japanese Fruit Pie and Oh-So-Good Pie.It's basically a golden chess pie filling chockful of good things like raisins pecans and coconuts. Very toothsome very satisfying. Read More

Delicious. I added twice as many pecans as the recipe requested because the filling was a little skimpy to me. Also the additional pecans made it less sweet which worked out perfect for us. Read More

The recipe is very easy to put together. I had 2 9" pie shells ready but there was only enough for one pie shell so I had to make another recipe. I added 1 T orange juice concentrate in place of the lemon juice. Yum! Read More

VERY delicious and seems to be adaptable. Tastes a bit like chess pie but more complex. I cut down the vanilla to 2t instead of 1T and substituted regular raisins in lieu of golden and it was all good. Other tips: do NOT make this into two pies. I had two deep dish 9" pies and split the batter then rolled the crust down to the edge of the batter. If you combined into one large pie the top would burn before the middle set and it's such a rich pie that you wouldn't really want to have a super deep slice. This would go very well with vanilla ice cream. I thought the lemon juice ingredient would impart some lemon flavor - it didn't and next time I make this I'll be adding some lemon zest and removing the raisins altogether. Read More

This pie is the consistency of a pecan pie which I love. I have never tasted this pie before and made it for a family gathering. Everyone liked it. My cousin said he liked the texture and the coconut in it. I followed the recipe as written but did add a little more pecans then listed only because I had extra and wanted to use them up. This is a sweet pie but I wouldn't change a thing. Read More
