1/2   package (15 ounces) refrigerated pie crust (1 crust)
1   container (12 ounces) light frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided
1   container (8 ounces) reduced-fat sour cream
2   limes, divided
1/2   cup sweetened flaked coconut, toasted, divided
1   package (3.4 ounces) vanilla instant pudding and pie filling
12   maraschino cherries with stems (optional)

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Let pie crust stand at room temperature 15 minutes. Gently unfold crust onto lightly floured surface. Roll to an 11 1/2-inch circle.

Zest one lime to measure 1 teaspoon zest; juice to measure 2 tablespoons juice. Add lime zest and juice to sour cream mixture; whisk until smooth. Add 1/4 cup of the coconut and pudding mix; whisk until well blended. (Mixture will be very thick.) Immediately spoon filling into crust; spread evenly.
  3. Sprinkle top of pie with remaining coconut. Garnish pie with reserved whipped topping. Slice remaining lime; cut slices in half and place between each rosette. Top each rosette with a cherry, if desired. Cover; refrigerate at least 30 minutes before serving.
