  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Press coconut into bottom and sides of unbaked pie shell.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the eggs, corn syrup, sugar, vanilla, and salt until well blended. Fold in macadamia nuts. Pour into pie shell.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C), and continue baking until top is brown, and filling is set; this will take about 30 more minutes. Let pie cool.
  4. To make Topping: In a chilled bowl, whip cream to soft peaks. Gradually pour in cream of coconut while whipping just until cream of coconut is fully incorporated. Slice pie into wedges and serve, passing coconut cream separately.

I love this pie. In fact, I brought this to a friend's potluck and everyone loved it just as much. All 8 of us agreed it would be worth it to diet all week just to have a big slice of this pie...

Tried this and the family loved it! You may want to decrease the nut measurement to 1 cup, though.

wonderful.all my friends love this pie. everyone asks for the recipe.

I made this pie for Mother's Day dinner, and everyone absolutely loved it :) My husband made a point to tell me 3 different times that it was his favorite pie ever! I guess I'll be making this...

This is the first pie I ever made (we don't have them in Europe) and it was excellent - I happen to like that it was not overly sweet, yet full of flavor. Just one thing: it took 15-20 minutes ...

This was an interesting recipe. I love macadamia nuts, but this pie needed more sugar. I think I was expecting something as rich as my pecan pie. I also would reduce the amount of nuts to 1 1...

This was ok. The topping needs some more flavor, and my crust burned a little. Everyone else loved it though. I also substituted different nuts, using what I had on hand.

Excellent! I love pecan pie, but this one just took first place!

Delcious. 2nd pie I ever made turned out into 'Perfection'. Kind of obsessing!
