Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375°F.

To make a delicious Coconut Streusel Cherry Pie, the first step is to preheat the oven to 375°F. This temperature will ensure that the pie is cooked through and the streusel topping is golden brown.

Before preheating the oven, it is important to make sure that the oven racks are in the correct position. Once the oven is preheated, the pie crust should be prepared.

2. Place pie crust in 9-inch deep-dish pie plate.

To make a Coconut Streusel Cherry Pie, the first step is to place a pie crust in a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate. To do this, begin by lightly flouring a clean work surface.

Unwrap the pie crust and place it on the floured surface. Using a rolling pin, roll the crust out until it is slightly larger than the pie plate. Gently fold the crust in half and place it in the pie plate.

3. Pour cherry pie filling into crust.

Then, prepare your pie crust. You can either use a store-bought crust or make your own. Once the crust is ready, spread a layer of coconut streusel over the bottom of the crust.

This can be made by combining shredded coconut, sugar, flour, and butter. Next, pour in the cherry pie filling. Make sure to evenly spread the filling in the crust.

4. In medium bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

In medium bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg to make the streusel topping for the Coconut Streusel Cherry Pie.

Start by measuring out 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 1/3 cup of light brown sugar, 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg. Then, mix the ingredients together until they are fully combined.

5. Cut in butter with pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Use a pastry blender or two knives to cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Once the crust is ready, press it into a 9-inch pie plate and refrigerate it for 30 minutes.

6. Stir in coconut.

Sprinkle the streusel topping over the cherry mixture. Finally, stir in the coconut flakes and spread them evenly over the streusel topping. Bake the pie for 45 minutes or until the streusel topping is golden brown.
