Lime Coconut Chess Pie

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degree F. Prepare pastry as directed. On a lightly floured surface, use your hands to slightly flatten dough. Roll dough from center to edges into a circle about 12 inches in diameter. To transfer pastry, wrap it around the rolling pin. Unroll pastry into a 9-inch pie plate. Ease pastry into pie plate without stretching it. Trim pastry to 1/2 inch beyond edge of pie plate. Fold under extra pastry. Crimp edge as desired. Do not prick pastry; set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine granulated sugar, brown sugar, and flour. Using an electric mixer beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until combined. Beat in butter, lime peel, lime juice, and vanilla until combined.
  3. Sprinkle 3/4 cup of the coconut over the bottom of the pie crust. Pour filling over coconut in crust. Bake for 45 minutes or until top appears set when lightly shaken. Cool pie on wire rack for 1 hour. Chill in the refrigerator for 3 to 6 hours.
  4. Meanwhile, toast the remaining 1/4 cup coconut in a shallow baking pan in a 350 degree F oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Watch carefully and stir once or twice so coconut doesn't burn. Just before serving, in a chilled mixing bowl beat whipping cream with an electric mixer on medium speed until peaks form. Spread whipped cream over center of chilled pie and sprinkle with toasted coconut. Makes 8 servings.
