Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar, eggs, butter, lemon juice, vanilla, coconut, and pecans. Pour mixture into pie crust and bake until lightly golden on top, about 30 minutes. Let cool before slicing.
Makes one 9-inch pie, 6 servings.
"I like something sweet at the end of a meal, so I usually include this pie at luncheons. In fact, I make two or three because someone always wants to take a slice home!" Recipe from "Eula Mae's Cajun Kitchen Cookbook"
