White Christmas Pie

“Found this recipe in a Christmas book of the same name by Wanda Brunstetter. The book was sweet story about a young Amish couple and the pie sounds wonderful. Sure haven't tried it yet but want to for Christmas so am putting it here to save. Finally made this (for Spring and not Christmas) and it was very good. It is sweet and I used sweetened flaked coconut so next time may use unsweetened. But very light, fresh and pretty - a lovely desert to impress with. I'm wondering how it would be with a meringue topping!”
