Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2012
My husband orders Coconut Cream every time we go to the bakery and always talked about his grandmother and how she made the best coconut cream pie. I have used several recipes that just didn't compare. Then one day I stumbled upon this one. He LOVES it!! He says it is as good as hers and I was so proud! I have made it many times since and followed the recipe with a few exceptions. I added a little coconut extract ( flavoring but not the artificial kind ) and it was extra coconutty! I also use fine and flake coconut in it for more texture and use about 3/4 cup of each ( so about 1 and a half cups rather than the 1 it calls for ) Also I used real whipped cream rather than cool whip. It is so good!! My husband prefers it with a graham crust to a pie crust as well, but it really is just super either way!!! Lovely recipe! A new family favorite!!
