      I love coconut cream pie - especially when someone else bakes it.

      Looks like a great coconut cream pie recipe, I've never made one from scratch before.

      I discovered coconut about twelve years ago and soon added it into just everything. I guess than came overload and not long ago I have to rediscover it. Coconut flavored sweets has amazing taste but very specific, so we have to enjoy in modest amounts. Thanks for the recipe, it will come handy!

      I love coconut! A little piece of trivia though, coconuts are green, not brown. The brown ones have had the outer layers removed. It always bothers me (I'm a bit OC) to see brown coconuts in cartoons and artwork.

      Hmmm, maybe a twitterstorm or duel module about liking coconut cream pies -- I say more guys than gals like this pie or consider it their favorites. I personally wouldn't call it my favorite -- maybe pecan or cheesecake!
