A quick and easy dessert recipe using coconut and eggs. I have used mashed banana instead of the lemon juice and I have also tried lime juice and orange juice. The banana is yummy! Serve with cream or ice cream.

I have to agree with the other reviews. My family wouldn't eat this. I had to throw it out. We didn't like the texture. It was like a custard that had very little taste. We couldn't taste any lemon flavor. I will not use this recipe again. Read More

This really is an easy recipe to make. Unfortunately it's the first dessert I've ever made that my husband didn't ask for seconds of. He didn't care for the texture and couldn't taste the lemon. I agree that adding lemon zest would be helpful and perhaps cutting back on the coconut. Read More

I do agree that this recipe is very quick! This recipe did not work out for my family. My teen age daughter made this and it came out fine. It just was not our kind of desert. We did not care for the texture mostly. Otherwise I think it would be fine if texture isn't a problem for you. Read More

This is incredibly easy to whip up. I used the recipe as written and think it wasn't lemony enough for me maybe the coconut overpowered it. I would increase the lemon and add some lemon zest to kick it up. Will try it again maybe with bananas! Read More

This recipe was okay. After reading the other reviews I decided to add a little lemon extract to boost the flavor. Not bad. I'd make it again. Read More

Very nice! I went with the authur's banana suggestion and it was quick easy and really good. I substituted 1/2 cup sliced banana's for the lemon juice and added 1/2 tsp of vanilla. I served it with sliced bananas and fresh whipped cream. The only thing I would change next time is to reduce the sugar a touch but that's just my taste. Re: the negative reviews impossible pie doesn't form a flakey crust like a traditional pie. It's more like a combination of cake and custard with a bit of a crunchy edge. Expectations are key with this one. Read More
