"hussey" family recipe


makes 2 pies...(Not a cream pie)

almost french coconut in texture..

2 cups sugar

4 tblspns flour

pinch of salt

2 cups milk

2 cups coconut

2 tspns vanilla

4 tblspns butter

2 frozen pie crust..

bake @ 350-375 25-30 min in preheated oven

Tip: mix all ingredients and place coconut in last ,pour into pie shells and shake to keep the coconut from settling on the way to the oven(slightly)

My step-mother would make this pie but she called it Impossible pie. Very tasty Pie!

I just went and looked up the recipe hers was a bit different as she did not use pie crust. The pie made it's own crust.

Okay, now I have to try my "conversion" on this recipe to see if it will work with stevia (instead of sugar), almond milk (rather than "real" milk) and Smart Balance Light (to replace the butter). I'll let you know....I do love the taste of coconut (and use the unsweetened variety so that means more stevia is needed).

I know you're wondering why I don't just make the darned recipe the way it's written!

Hi, jorja...I am lactose intolerant, but not a diabetic. Eating sugar (even a small bit) makes me very lethargic....I can barely move until it's out of my system.

I also have to watch what type and the amount of fats I consume, because it's a battle to keep my cholesterol stats in the "almost normal" range. That's a genetic issue.

That said, I was, until recently, a vegan. Now (after my doctor recently "prescribed" that I eat fish and eggs at least once a week due to my age and enhanced need for protein), I'm what is labeled a pesce-ova-tarian!

I only eat certain types of fish and search out truly organic eggs from free-range chickens. I do not trust the USDA's "certified organic" label since I read extensively about the practices they allow large egg producers that don't fit the "organic" description. (I found a local farmer who raises chickens the old-fashioned way and feeds them organic feed--no hormones, pesticides or GMO food--plus left-over greens from his kitchen and whatever they can peck up in the grass, including worms, like chickens are supposed to do!)

I don't consume any milk or cheese, or anything that contains actual cow's milk. Instead, I use almond "milk" and rice "milk." (I don't like soymilk.) If I can ever find some organic yogurt that I trust to be truly organic, I will add it.

I was a vegan for both health and humane reasons, and I still feel a bit guilty eating the fish (but not the healthy eggs--I'm not a fanatic). But the issue of factory farming and the harm I believe it causes--both to the health of consumers, the planet, not to mention extreme cruelty to animals--is one of my hot buttons. I'm considering a hub about the whole gamut of issues arising from the greed of those who run corporate "factory farms", heedless to the hazards to health. The bottom line is all that counts in the world of commerce, apparently!

Okay...off my soapbox...for the moment!

Actually, I have a very enjoyable and healthy diet. I eat a wide assortment of organic veggies and fruits, brown rice and other whole grains, nuts, various types of soy products, olive oil, and I seek out vegetarian recipes because I enjoy cooking (and eating). I make oatmeal cookies using stevia to sweeten (and, before I began using organic eggs, used either mashed banana or applesauce to replace the egg). When I leave a plate of these cookies on the island in my kitchen, they disappear as quickly as people walk through....

I don't try to force my food lifestyle choices on other people, though I will talk about my reasons if they're interested. One of my adult sons is presently living with me. I know he eats meat sometimes when he isn't here, but he enjoys my veggie-and-whole-grains cooking and eats (for the most part) what I do when he's home.

P.S. By the time you've read all the above, you're probably wishing you hadn't asked! Ha-ha!
