Sweetened coconut flakes - will they be a problem?

i_am_Lois | Nov 18, 201310:53 AM

I've been wanting to make a coconut custard pie. (Not to be confused with a coconut cream pie.) I want the end result to be similar what I remember as a child. I needed an old fashioned recipe, & plan on using the one Eagle brand (Borden) has posted on their web site. Their recipe doesn't specify whether to use sweetened or unsweetened coconut flakes. Every other recipe I checked clearly states UNSWEETENED coconut flakes. I've checked at all my local stores & none sell unsweetened. When I make the pie should I cut back on sugar? Toast the flakes at a lower temperature? (What temp should I use?) Or should I wait till the day I come across unsweetened flakes to bake this pie?
