Well, most of you know
that crazy ole' BJ @ Sweet Nothings, right?
She is always up to SOMETHING..
and sometimes she
teases honors blesses me
by mentioning me on her blog.
Like I said- Crazy.
A week or so ago she posted a recipe for
her mother-in-law's recipe for
She told a story that put a lump in my throat
about her hubby's experience as a kid when
his mom made coconut cream pie.
Now, I happen to LOVE Coconut Cream Pie.
Yes. I. Do.
(which is really funny because I don't like
coconut anything else-yes.I'm.weird)
So, I copied down bj's recipe from this card she posted.
Well, you know me-
I had to change it up JUST A BIT.
Here is my version of bj's pie.
Coconut Cream Pie
3 tablespoons flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 cups milk (I used 1-1/2 cups milk & 1-1/2 cups half & half)
2 LARGE eggs (3 small ones)
1 Tablespoon butter
1 Tablespoon Vanilla (I use real vanilla)
1-1/2 to 2 cups coconut~ I used Bakers from the bag in the baking aisle (we don't like it toasted like some do)
In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, flour and salt. Stir in milk; cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat; gradually stir about 1 cup of hot mixture into beaten eggs. Return all to saucepan; cook and stir over medium heat until nearly boiling. Reduce heat; cook and stir about 2 minutes more (do not boil). Remove from the heat; stir in the coconut, butter and vanilla. Pour into pre-baked pie shell. Chill for several hours before serving and top with whipped cream and sprinkle with more coconut if desired.. Refrigerate leftovers.
Yield: 6-8 servings.
Do NOT believe anyone that tells you
I ate the whole pie by myself over
the course of a
There are SUCH liars in this world.

Big lie! BIG LIE!
I feel a trip to the confessional coming on.........sigh......

I never get sick.
I am into it about 36 hours this morning.
I have things to do.
IF I am not around today you will know why!
