"Coconut Delight"


I don't know who came up with the name for this dessert but as cheezy as it sounds, it is truly delightful. So light and delicious, very complimentary to any meal. I love making it, but it calls for Coconut pudding which was near impossible to find in Brooklyn, so I only made it when I could stash a few packages into my suitcase, and I usually used them up within a month. But now that I'm back in Utah where the grocery stores are endless and well, lets just say I've made it a few times too many.

A friend of mine just had twin girls a few weeks ago so this afternoon I made her a batch and of course doubled it for myself. The few times I have served it at parties etc., I usually get many calls for the recipe so I thought I would share.

1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted        1 cup flour
1-1/4 cup flaked coconut                      1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup slivered almonds

In a bowl, mix the above ingredients together, press lightly into a greased 13 x 9 inch baking pan. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown, stirring every 10 minutes to form coarse crumbs. Cool. Divide crumb mixture in half;press half into the same baking pan.


1 pkg. (3.4 oz) of instant vanilla pudding mix
1 pkg. (3.4 oz) of instant coconut pudding mix
2 2/3 cup cold milk
Fold in 2 cups whipped topping ( I use heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla)


Spoon over crust. Top with remaining crumb mixture. Cover and refrigerate overnight. (It tastes better the longer it sits).

And enjoy!!

i'm a fan of anything with the word "delight" in the name. i can't wait to make the real version of this- i've only had it brooklyn style w/o the coconut pudding. . . but the berry trifle is officially in the top five of my favorite desserts.

and, i bought the most recent marie claire yesterday just because it had maggie on the cover and maggie makes me think of you. i miss you!

Hi! I hopped to your blog one day from Katie's (I liked your title) and since then I've checked out your shop and plan on ordering some things this week or next. You have great things; you and Katie are inspiring me to learn how to use my sewing machine!
I wanted to ask you the same question I asked Katie- what lense do you use on your camera? You guys both get such great shots.

Take care and thanks!

Yum this is really delightful. So much so that if you don't get to it fast enough you don't get any, such as the case was for me when I went searching for some
and found none. None delight. I was sad. Still am.
