  • If you go with a store-bought crust, I love this one from Marie Callender's. This is a great recipe from Sally's Baking Addiction for a homemade pie crust.
  • Toasted coconut or chocolate shavings make great toppings for this pie. But be careful to not go overboard as you don't want to detract from the flavor and texture of the pie.
