I also answered the same request. Though I am definitely sure that your recipe is much better tasting because its yours. A truly old-fashioned coconut cream pie recipe can only be authentic when they are family recipes. Thank you for sharing your personal treasure, G-Ma!

This looks yummy. I had a very tall coconut pie last fall, I wonder if it was coconut chiffon though they called it coconot cream. Must bake. Must eat.

I had my first taste of coconut cream pie in a place called Oneonta in NYS 3 years ago. It was home made and to die for!. I think your ccp is the equivalent in America to the Pavlova or Lemon Merangue Pie in Australia. Yummmmm.

G-Ma, I want one! It's one of the few ways I actually like coconut. But I imagine yours is SO MUCH BETTER than mine!

I think my coconut trees are almost ready to harvest--maybe you can come over to my farm and make us one! :-)

Umm-mm, coconut cream is just my vice-favorite pie!. I'm wondering if a recipe would go well using canned coconut milk that I recently bought - almost afraid to try it...haven't had any for a while, and you've tempted me!

Thanks for sharing your recipe and your smiling hugs!
