So my absolute favorite pie is a coconut cream pie! I love the thick custard that envelops the sweet coconut followed by the fluffy whipped cream and sprinkling of crunchy toasted coconut.

Well, today for lemon week, my favorite pie get the addition of lemon. The tangy lemon coconut cream pie is the perfect compliment to the sweet coconut.

I upped the coconut flavor of this recipe by using store bought coconut macaroons for the crust. However, you can always swap that out for a prepared graham cracker crust instead. However, the cookies just up the coconut flavor to this pie!
