Key Lime Coconut Pie

Key Lime Coconut Pie

The pucker-inducing, sweet-tart flavor of traditional key lime pie is mellowed with fragrant, exotic coconut for a new twist on a classic dessert. The cookie crust gets a flavor boost from Toasted Coconut and Warm Cinnamon Graham Flavors. Everything is covered in a billowy cloud of coconut-scented meringue, and just barely broiled to tie back to the toasty cinnamon graham in the crust.
