This pie is absolutely fabulous! Such a treat to the palate! I use a refrigerated pie crust - the kind you unroll and place in your pie plate. I also use Dark chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet for that extra 'oomph'! It's also ok to use plain coconut flakes instead of the sweetened packaged kind. Although I usually use pecans, this time I didn't have any on hand, so used walnuts.Equally as good.
