Instead of using a pre-made pie crust, I made an Animal Cracker Cookie crust.  I was very happy how the crust turned out as well as the pie! 

 Coconut Cream Pie

2 Pkgs (6 serving size) Instant Vanilla Pudding

2 Cups Milk

1 Cup Coconut

2 Pkgs Dream Whip (prepared separately according to directions on box) or Cool Whip (8 oz)

Beat the pudding powder with the milk until well blended, about 5 minutes.  Add 1 Cup Coconut and fold in 1 Pkg prepared Dream Whip.  Pour into baked pie shell and top with the other prepared Dream Whip or Cool Whip.  Sprinkle additional toasted coconut over topping.

Animal Cracker Cookie Crust

1 1/4 Cups crushed Animal Crackers

6 Tbsp melted Butter

Mix cookie crumbs and butter together.  Put in pie plate and press down to cover bottom and sides.  Cook at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
