Club BAKED: Sawdust Pie

Today's recipe is brought to you by Tessa, The Cookin Chemist.

When I first got the book, I passed over the pies & tarts section... cause I'm just not a pie & tart person.  I'm more about cakes, cupcakes & cookies.  This time around... since there are more pie & tart recipes for me to try, I figure I would tackle more than I normally would.

Sawdust pie - I KNEW the end product would somehow resemble sawdust!  My tweaks:
  • I didnt realize the recipe called for UNSWEETENED cocout until I was ready to rip open the package.  I only had sweetened coconut.  Therefore, I omitted all the sugar that was in the recipe.
  • Instead of making a full pie, I made individual pies.  To do this, I majorly cheated.  I didnt make any of the pie crust that was called for.  I used Keebler's Mini Graham Cracker Crust Pie Crusts.

Next time, I will definitely use UNSWEETENED coconut.  There was way too much sugar in the sweetened version.  I loved the nutty flavor.  Tasted like a pecan pie.
