The picture of this pie is terrible. My pie was tall and fluffy. I used 1lemon that I juiced and
This pie is outrageously good! I agree about using less sugar and more lemon. The first time I made this, I used 3/4 C sugar as suggested in the comments. Second time out, I forgot about that and used 2C sugar as listed. The pie was more to my liking when it wasn't so sweet. The version with 2C sugar gave me a top that was deep brown and crisp/chewy, which I did like. Also, I used Baker's sweetened shredded coconut. Way easier.
Correction to the above review - 3/4 (or just shy of it) cup of regular sugar in the custard. I always cut down on sugar in recipes but 2 cups must be a typo. The last few times I have used 2/3 unsweetened coconut, 1/3 sweetened. Also almost triple the lemon. Fantastic.
Excellent pie but there are problems with the recipe. Forget about baking a coconut - use packaged. In the custard use 3/4 cup of powdered sugar and double the lemon. Wonderful and easy.
