“A delicious pie recipe from my mother-in-law. You can make a graham cracker crust instead of the macaroon cookie crust, if desired. Prep time does not include chilling time.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spread 1/2 cup coconut on cookie sheet (ungreased). Bake 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Lightly grease a 9-inch pie pan and either press macaroons into pan forming a crust or make a graham cracker crust.
  4. Bake crust at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. Cool.
  5. In mixing bowl, at high speed, beat 2 1/2 cups cream with 1/4 cup plus 1 T sugar until almost stiff. Reserve.
  6. In large bowl, mix dry pudding with milk and extract. Stir in toasted coconut. Fold whipped cream into pudding mixture.
  7. Heat fudge sauce until just warm. (Two minutes in microwave). Spread 2 cups pudding mixture into crust. Spread 1/2 of fudge sauce over pudding layer. Top with remaining pudding mix; then top with rest of fudge sauce. Cover with plastic wrap and chill at least two hours.
  8. Just before serving, beat remaining cream and sugar until stiff peaks form. Spread over pie. Sprinkle with toasted coconut.
