Ingredients

Crust:

  • 9 whole-sheets Graham Crackers
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter (melted)

Pie:

  • 2 cups shredded sweetened coconut
  • 8 ounces cream cheese (room temperature)
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 8 ounces whipped topping

Instructions

Crust:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a food processor, combine the graham crackers, sugar and melted butter. Pulse until well blended and combined. If the mixture is a little too crumbly, add another tablespoon of melted butter.
  • Press the graham cracker mixture into a 9" tart pan, packing it onto the bottom and up the sides.
  • Cook for 8 minutes. Set out to cool completely.

Toasting the Coconut:

  • Lower the oven on 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Spread all of the coconut onto a baking sheet and bake for 3 minutes at a time. After each 3 minutes, mix the coconut up so it doesn’t burn. Bake until lightly browned, about 10 minutes.

The Pie:

  • In a medium bowl, add the cream cheese, vanilla and sugar. Beat until smooth and creamy. With a spatula, add in the whipped topping and fold until combined. Then, add in all of the coconut except for ½ a cup, fold into the mixture.
  • Pour into the cooled crust and spread around evenly. Top with the remaining coconut. Place into the freezer for about 15 minutes, cut and serve. Store in the refrigerator.
