  • I am certainly going to make this Dawnie. Lucy is coming in June and this will be a wonderful dessert. She will love it!1 Thanks.

    • It is so good, the crust tastes like a shortbread cookie. You can toast extra coconut and put on top too. I did more the second time. It’s yummy! It will keep for a few days too which is nice..

Let me know what you think.
