Creamy Coconut Pecan Pies

Here is yet another dessert recipe.

I think maybe I should be focusing on some main dish ideas with beef, chicken and so forth because I have realized that there are more dessert recipes on here than anything else.

Maybe that's why I never seem to lose any weight ! :0)

Creamy Coconut Pecan Pies

7 oz. pkg. coconut
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup butter
8 oz. cream cheese
14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk
3 cups Cool Whip
2 graham cracker pie crusts
1 cup caramel ice cream topping

In a skillet, cook and stir coconut, nuts and butter till coconut browns.
Be careful because it will burn quickly once it gets hot enough.
When browned remove to a cookie sheet & spread it out to cool.
In mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and milk till well blended.
Fold in Cool Whip.
Place 1/2 of filling in each pie shell.
Sprinkle the coconut - nut mixture over the tops.
Drizzle with caramel.
Place in freezer and let freeze all day or overnight.
