Aunt Alma's Coconut Cream Pie

Hello, Dear One!
I've just pulled a coconut cream pie out of the oven just for you!

I just love almost anything with coconut, don't you?

This is a special pie to me.
Not just because it was baked in an olden vintage pie plate...

but because it is the recipe my Aunt Alma gave me many years ago. 
I loved my Aunt Alma, she loved me and you'll love her pie!

Have a lovely weekend 
and
here's the recipe:

Pin It


Aunt Alma's Coconut Cream Pie

2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
14 tsp salt
2 cups milk
3 eggs yolks, beat slightly
1 cup coconut
2 Tbs butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 baked pie shell

Combine sugar, corn starch and salt into a small pan. Add milk and stir until smooth. On medium heat, cook and stir continuously until thick and almost to a boil. Lower heat and cook 2 more minutes longer, stirring. Remove pan from heat and stir a small amount of the hot filling into the eggs yolks. Add this back into the pan and continue to stir until mixture comes to a soft boil. Cook and stir 2 more minute. Remove from heat and add coconut, vanilla and butter. Stir until the butter has melted. Pour the hot filling into your baked pie shell. Top with your favorite meringue, sprinkle with a little bit of flaked coconut and bake in a 350' oven until a light golden brown.

Yummy!


Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Country Pie

Just like old Saxophone Joe
When he's got the hogshead up on his toe
Oh me, oh my
Love that country pie.

Listen to the fiddler play

When he's playin' 'til the break of day
Oh me, oh my
Love that country pie.

Rasberry, strawberry, lemon and lime

What do I care ?
Blueberry, apple, cherry, pumpkin and plum
Call me for dinner, honey, I'll be there.

Saddle me up on my big white goose

Tie me on 'er turn her loose
Oh me, oh my
Love that country pie.

I don't need much and that ain't no lie

Ain't runnin' any race
Give to me my country pie
I won't throw it up in anybody's face.

Shake me up that old peach tree

Little Jack Horner's got nothin' on me
Oh me, oh my
Love that country pie.
~ sung by Bob Dylan

First, I had to wait until I had lab work done for my annual physician...now, I'm waiting for double digit temperatures!!! This one is surely a keeper...so I'm placing it in my file!!! Thanks for sharing! Is the coffee ready??? I'm on my cyber~way over, dear friend!
