Serves 2 pies | Prep Time | Cook Time

Ingredients

2 graham cracker crusts
1 cup butter (I use about 3/4 cup margarine)
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 (7 oz) pkg flake coconut
1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese
1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (16 oz) cool whip
1 (12 oz) jar caramel ice cream sauce


Melt butter in skillet; add pecans and coconut and cook until golden brown.


Set aside.


In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk until smooth; then fold in the cool whip.


Layer 1/4 of cream cheese mixture in one graham cracker crust; layer 1/4 of the mixture in the 2nd pie crust; drizzel caramel sauce over the cream cheese mixture, drizzle sauce on 2nd pie; then top with the coconut-pecan mixture on both pies.


Repeat.


You end up with the coconut-pecan mixture on the top of each pie and a nice, tall pie.


You could add pecan halves or shaved chocolate topping or a dollop of cool whip and a cherry, if you like.


Freeze until firm (about an hour).


Remove from the freezer about five minutes before serving.
