What To Avoid While Making this Recipe?

  2. Avoid over-baking the pie crust, as it can become tough and chewy. Bake according to package instructions or until lightly golden brown.
  3. Avoid substituting low-fat coconut milk for full-fat coconut milk, as it may affect the texture and flavor of the custard.
  4. Avoid skipping the refrigeration step, as it allows the custard to set properly and ensures a creamy consistency.
  5. Avoid omitting the whipped cream and toasted coconut toppings, as they add a delightful contrast in texture and flavor to the pie.
