I was asked to make the dessert for a family BBQ and I dove head first into my Yummy Stuff Pinterest board. There are so many things I want to make so when I get the chance, I'm overjoyed. I've been really into coconut lately, and I knew most of my in laws really like it, so I decided on this Princess Pie. It did not disappoint. It was fairly easy to pull together and everyone loved it! My father in law even stole some to take home with him. If you love coconut or even just a light summery dessert, this is the one to try.
½cup butter, melted
½cup chopped pecans - optional
Mix and pat in an 8x8 inch pan, bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, until just beginning to turn golden. Do not over bake.
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup whipped topping
Beat together sugar and cream cheese. Fold in whipped topping. Spread on cooled crust.
1 small package coconut cream instant pudding
1 1/2 cups whole milk (any milk will do, but whole milk makes pudding so much tastier)
Mix until thickened. Spread over cream cheese mixture.
Top with remaining tub of whipped topping. Toast 1 cup coconut. Sprinkle evenly on dessert. Refrigerate.
