Tasty Treat Thursdays: Frozen Caramel Coconut Pie

Frozen Caramel Coconut Pie

20130227-203533.jpg

4 tablespoons butter
2 cups sweetened flaked coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
12 ounces frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 jar (6 or 8 oz.) caramel ice cream topping
2 9-inch graham cracker crusts

Melt the butter in a large non-stick skillet. Add the coconut and pecans, stirring constantly until the coconut is lightly browned. Pour the coconut and pecans out on a plate to cool completely.
Use an electric mixer to combine the cream cheese and condensed milk, mixing until well blended. Fold in the whipped topping and one-half of the coconut mixture. Pour one-fourth of this mixture into the bottom of the two crusts. Spoon on as much caramel topping as you wish. Pour over the rest of the cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle with the remaining coconut and pecans. Freeze the pies at least 4 hours. Remove from the freezer about 20 minutes before serving time. Return any leftover pie to the freezer.

I’m a married mother of 3. Who loves living in Minnesota, prep ahead cooking, and couldn’t live without them now. No more worries about the age old question “What’s for Dinner?”. I am also transitioning my family into the slow food and clean eating movement. I believe it’s best if we can eat food in it’s most natural state. I love to share the information I have been gaining through this whole experience. I’m also a trained personal chef. Cooking is a passion and hobby of mine. Hope your are enjoying the content of my blog.
