I would have to say that by now I've probably made a million or more of these delicious pies. They are one of the most delicious pies you'll ever make and they are also one of the easiest to make pies you'll ever make. I've been making these particular pies since the late 1970's and I believe that this particular pie originated in the Myrtle Beach area of South Carolina where it is made and served in many places there even today.
I like to make this pie in a graham cracker pie crust and once you ever make one of these you'll realize why they are so delicious. The flavor and texture of one of these pies after it has chilled in the refrigerator is just simply delicious.

Mix all your ingredients together in a bowl with an electric mixer except for the 1 tablespoon of coconut. Pour and scoop the mixed up filling ingredients into the graham cracker pie shell.
Take that one tablespoon of coconut and toast it golden brown under your ovens broiler. Don't over cook the coconut. Then sprinkle it on top of the pie.
