  8. Let pie stand at room temperature for 20 minutes before serving.

* How to toast coconut: Toasting coconut enhances the flavor and lightly colors the coconut a very light golden brown color. Spread the coconut in a single layer on a baking sheet with shallow sides. Bake at 325 degrees F, tossing occasionally, for about 10 minutes.
