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.

   Hi Sajida, Yes, you can simply mix digestive biscuit crumble with sugar and melted butter to make a biscuit crust instead of coconut.
