    Meanwhile, make either Easy Coconut Cream Pie Filling or Easy Fresh Strawberry-Cream Cheese Pie Filling.
    Easy Coconut Cream Pie Filling: Make pudding mix as directed on box, using 1 3/4 cups (425 mL) milk. Stir in coconut extract and whipped topping. Spread in cooled crust. Sprinkle with toasted coconut. Refrigerate at least 1 hour. Store covered in refrigerator.
    Easy Fresh Strawberry-Cream Cheese Pie Filling: In large bowl, beat cream cheese with electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy. Gradually beat in 1/3 cup (75 mL) sugar and the vanilla until well blended. Add whipping cream; beat on low speed until blended. Beat on high speed 1 to 2 minutes. Spread in cooled crust. Arrange halved strawberries decoratively over cream cheese mixture. Brush or drizzle with preserves. Refrigerate about 1 hour or until set. Store covered in refrigerator.
