Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2012
I followed the directions as instructed except for the whipped topping. I also did the whipping cream variant. I agree the instructions are a bit vague when it says bring to a boil. It kept my stove top on for probably 20 minutes stirring constantly until it was thickening up and the occasional bubble popped to the surface. You stir for 20 minutes or so, you understand what firming up is! It is a custard style pie so you have to keep stirring so it doesn't burn to the bottom or "curdle" from the eggs cooking in the mix before the custard thickens properly. This recipe did deliver exactly as the ingredients require. For one more jab to those complainers out there, I found it funny many people complained about the whipped topping but would still use a pre-made graham cracker crust instead of making your own:) Anyway, the pie is delicious and I give only 4 stars since old fashion should go all the way, crust and topping!

Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2012
Very Delicious. I only give it 4 stars since I tweeked some. I followed some reviews of others and did a 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup light brown sugar. And at the end of the cooking period I sprinkled some cinnamon over the top and stirred it in as well. I, like others, feel I will never go back to canned sauce again. I agree it makes a great spread on the yeast rolls as well. I did cook and stir mine at least 10 minutes longer to get a noticeably thicker sauce. I just hope I find cranberries through out the year as this needs to be eaten year round!
