For the crust:

  • 1-1/2 cups finely crushed lime shortbread cookies
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar

For the pie:

  • 3 egg yolks
  • 5 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 1/3 cups sweetened shredded coconut divided
  • 1 tablespoon lime zest optional
  • Whipped cream optional


For the crust:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine all the pie crust ingredients in a large mixing bowl until crumbs are thoroughly coated with the butter.
  • Press the crumb mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a greased 9-inch round pie plate.
  • Bake for approximately 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Allow pie crust to cool completely before proceeding.

For the pie:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Separate the eggs, reserving the whites and yolks in separate bowls. Set egg whites aside.
  • Beat egg yolks until frothy.
  • Add sweetened condensed milk gradually. Leaving the mixer on, add the lime juice and 1 cup of the shredded coconut.
  • Once combined, pour mixture into the pie crust.
  • Bake pie at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes or until the filling is set. Allow pie to cool completely. Chill for at least four hours.
  • In the meantime, toast the remaining 1/3 cup of coconut in a skillet over medium to medium-low heat. Toast the coconut, stirring frequently, until it is lightly browned. Be sure to keep a close eye, as the coconut can burn quickly. Remove skillet from heat and set the coconut aside.
  • Before serving, sprinkle the cooled toasted coconut over the top of the pie. Garnish with whipped cream and lemon zest if desired.
