Ambrosia Cheese Pie

This one comes from a Taste of Home magazine (at least I think it does). This is a family favorite and perfect in summer!

1 pkg (8ozs) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
1 can (16ozs) mandarin orange segments, drained
1 1/4 cups coconut flakes, divided
1/2 cup sour cream
1 container (8 ozs) Cool Whip, thawed
1 (6 ozs.) graham cracker pie crust
1 can (8ozs.) pineapple chunks, drained

In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, confectioners sugar and orange juice until fluffy. Set aside 8 orange segments for garnish; fold remaining segments into cheese mixture until slightly broken up. Stir in 1 cup coconut and sour cream. Reserve 1 cup whipped topping for garnish; fold remaining topping into filling. Spoon into crust. Refrigerate until set, about 3 hours. Garnish with reserved whipped topping, coconut, orange segments, and pineapple chunks.
