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.
