Crème De La Cream (Fresh Coconut Pie Recipe)
Coconut pies have always been a weakness of mine. Really, pies in general are a weekends for me. My love for pies began in my grandmother’s kitchen, when I use to help her make her own signature pie, a pecan pie. Everyone in our family and at church all loved my Granny’s pecan pie. It was the dessert she always brought to get–togethers and potlucks.
Although I love her pecan pie, coconut pie os my absolute favorite. I’ve made it so many times through the years, trying to perfect a recipe that was just right, and I think i’ve finally got it . This is the Crème De La Cream of coconut pies. It’s a pie that uses fresh toasted coconut, real fresh coconut whipped cream and a creamy coconut milk custard filling. The crust is a crumbly almond filled pastry that pairs perfectly with the coconut.
