When my husband and I were first married his family had a lot of get togethers. He was the youngest of five children, and everyone was starting to have kids, so it was always somebody’s birthday. His mom’s coconut cream pie was requested quite often.
It was piled high with the luscious cream filling and meringue on top. The pie is one of my husband’s favorites. His mom has since passed away, but before she did, I managed to get her recipe.
It took me a couple of tries but now it is pretty darn close to hers.
A few weeks ago it was our 30th anniversary. It was cold and snowy so instead of going out I cooked dinner and I made the coconut cream pie for our dessert. It takes everything not to eat more than one piece at your meal.
If you like coconut, it is in the filling and on top of the meringue. And if you like more coconut…well, put in as much as you like.
Yum, Yum, Yum!!!!!
