Here is a rather different pie in which the crust is made of coconut. In the chocolate chiffon pie, chocolate mousse is set on a crusty thin coconut base, and garnished with whipped cream. When grating the coconut for the base, use a grater with medium-sized holes… if the coconut is too thickly or thinly grated, it will ruin the pie.
