Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
I first made this pie September 12, 2012 and this is a second, follow up review of sorts. As of today, December 22, 2012 - I have gained 12 pounds and completed my 50'th "Old Fashioned Coconut Creme Pie"! It's that good and I now make these two at a time! A little overboard, yes - but once you make this pie you will understand why. Read through the other reviews and try some of the substitutions others have made. Me, I use half heavy whipping cream / half whole milk in place of the half and half. (Yes, it's basically the same thing.) I also use an extra tsp of vanilla along with double the coconut(2 1/2 cups coconut actually) simply because I like them both. I also make my own whipped cream instead of using cool whip but cool whip works almost as well if you don't want to go through the trouble. This is a very flexible recipe, very easy to make and best of all it tastes AWESOME! Just be sure to continuously stir while cooking since it is a custard type filling and will easily burn on the bottom. The picture I have included with my review is of the 38'th and 39'th pies that I made that I used to tease my wife with while she was at work. This recipe makes an excellent pie and I almost guarantee it will become one of your favorites!

No Fail Pie Crust II

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2013
OK... to start, the reviews that claimed the crusts didn't turn out right was not this recipes fault!! They done something wrong! I've never made a pie crust in my 42 yrs on this earth - this was my first. On top of that, I lost my right hand a year and a half ago so now I'm a one handed pie maker. One word describes this crust. Amazing! Trust me, if a one handed pie maker has amazing results, go with it!
