Coconut Cheese Pie

1 1/2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
2 2/3 cups (approximately) flaked coconut
4 eggs
2/3 cup sugar
1 package (8-ounce) cream cheese
3 tablespoons lemon juice

Preheat oven to 325 F.

Spread butter evenly over bottom and sides of 9 inch pie pan. Press 1 and 1/3 cups of coconut into butter forming a shell.

Place 1 cup of coconut, eggs, sugar, cheese and lemon juice in blender or food processor. Blend until smooth, about 1 1/2 minutes. Pour into coconut shell. Sprinkle remaining coconut in a ring around top and in center.

Bake for 30 minutes (if coconut on top browns quickly, cover with circle of aluminum foil.)

Serve warm or cool; refrigerate any leftover pie.
