You helped a lot, Heather. From what you said, I figure that I can make anything that calls for coconut by substituting vanilla extract and omitting the flaked cocunut. Thanks again.

Yeah I generally like nuts, but on that pie, I like it better with out! lol

For the Frost one, just leave out the coconut. (that means you don't have the count the fat exchange) That's where some of the fat came from, coconut is always counted as a fat....so take that off, (I think maybe fourth a fat, as the crust also has around a fat exchange). I think it's only around 19 calories per a serving for the coconut. (2 tbs divided by 8).

Or if you don't want to do all that math, the chocolate chips are the same calories as the coconut, so just use another 2 tbs of chocolate chips and count it the same way.

Also use vanilla extract instead of coconut in the whipped topping.

I love coconut, but HATE coconut extract (taste chemical like). So I always do the vanilla any way in things that are not baked. When coconut extract is baked I like it ok. But, not baked yuck. lol haha

I hope that helps.

How would you adjust the Frost on the Pumpkin pie if you didn't like coconut? My husband like cocunut, but no one else in our family does. Thanks!

Thank you for these great recipes, Heather! With the exception of one, I'm not familiar with any of them.

It's funny that you said you liked the Pumpkin-Pecan Pie better without nuts. I think I made that one last Thanksgiving, and my husband didn't like the pecans!

This sounds like a odd combo, but it's delish!!!!!!!!1

Frost on the Pumpkin Patch Pie
JoAnna M. Lund

Pumpkin and coconut is another unusual taste combination. Don't turn
your nose up until you try it. My taste testers said it was one of
the most beautiful-looking and great-tasting pumpkin pie they had
ever tried! And if you never thought of combining pumpkin with
butterscotch pudding mix, after only one bite, you will be glad I
did.
Serves 8

1 purchased 9" chocolate flavored pie crust
1 (4 serving) pkg sugar-free instant butterscotch pudding mix
2/3 cup nonfat dry milk powder
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
2 cups canned pumpkin
1 cup Cool Whip Free
1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
1/4 oz mini chocolate chips (1 Tablespoon)
2 tablespoons shredded coconut

In large bowl combine dry pudding mix, dry milk powder and pumpkin
pie spice. Add pumpkin. Mix well using a wire whisk. Blend in 1/4 cup
Cool Whip Free. Pour into pie crust. In small bowl combine remaining
3/4 cup Cool Whip Free and coconut extract. Frost top of pie with
mixture. Garnish with mini chocolate chips and coconut. Chill until
ready to serve.

Each serving equals:

I think this one is even better with out the nuts! So I would suggest trying it with out the nuts if you want, and save a few calories and fat exchange.

Impossible Pumpkin-Pecan Pie
JoAnna M. Lund

she needed the "sugars" to disappear. My pumpkin pie loving son,
James loved this-enough said!
Serves 8

2 tablespoons Land O Lakes no-fat sour cream
2 eggs or equivalent in egg substitute
2 cups (one 15-ounce can) pumpkin
1/4 cup (1 ounce) chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9-inch deep dish pie plate with
butter-flavored cooking spray. In a small bowl, combine baking mix,
Splenda, and JO's Pumpkin Pie Spice. In a large bowl, combine dry
milk powder and water. Stir in vanilla extract, sour cream, eggs, and
pumpkin. Add baking mix mixture. Mix well to combine. Fold in pecans.
Spread batter into prepared pie plate. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes or
until a knife inserted neat cener comes out clean. Place pie plate on
a wire rack and let set for 30 minutes. Refrigerate for at least 2
hours. Cut into 8 servings.

HINTS: 1. Substitute any reputable brand for JO's Pumpkin Pie Spice.
