For a special dollop on top of each slice of pie, fold flaked coconut into whipped cream.
Use a heat-resistant glass pie plate or dull aluminum pie pan. Shiny or disposable pie pans reflect heat and prevent crusts from browning. Dark and absorb heat, causing overbrowning. Nonstick pans can cause unfilled crust to shrink excessively.
It is not necessary to grease the pan as pie pastry is high in fat.
