Ingredients

  • 1 9 inch frozen deep dish pie shell baked and cooled
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 8 oz flaked sweetened coconut
  • ½ cup roughly broken pecan pieces
  • 2 8 oz Neufchatel cream cheese softened
  • 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 12 oz fresh sweetened whipped cream or frozen whipped topping thawed and divided
  • cup dulce de leche or thick caramel ice cream topping
  • ¼ tsp coarse sea salt

Instructions

  • Blind bake pie crust per package instructions. Set aside to cool. 
  • In a heavy bottomed skillet over medium-high heat melt butter. Add the pecans and flaked coconut. Lower the heat to medium and stirring constantly, toast for 2-3 minute or until lightly golden in color. Spread out on parchment paper to cool completely.
  • In a medium sized mixing bowl, whip together cream cheese, condensed milk and vanilla. Whip for 2 minutes or until smooth.
  • Add  ½ of the whipped topping, whip until combined.
  • Spread one half of filling onto the bottom of the pie shell. Sprinkle with ½ of the toasted coconut and pecans.
  • Drizzle with ½ of the dulce de leche or caramel ice cream topping.
  • Repeat ending with the cream cheese filling.
  • Allow to chill for 4 hours or overnight to set-up.
  • Just before serving, frost with remaining whipped cream and sprinkle with toasted coconut and pecans. Drizzle with dulce de leche or caramel and sprinkle lightly with sea salt, if desired. Store chilled.

Notes

Dulce de leche is a luscious thick caramel made from cooking and reducing sweetened condensed milk. It's readily available in the Hispanic foods section of most grocery stores or at specialty stores such as World Market, Fresh Market or William-Sonoma.
