Coconut Cream Pie

by Laura

It’s all about the pie to finish off your Thanksgiving dinner. Pie is the way we always end Thanksgiving dinner with my family. One of my favorite pies is coconut cream pie. So, I decided to share a quick version of my favorite coconut cream pie this year.

Now this recipe actually makes 2 pies. I also prefer it to be made with a traditional pie crust, but a graham cracker crust will also do. I recently learned how to make a pie crust from scratch recently when I went to Ohio. However, the Pillsbury refrigerated crust or Marie Callendar’s frozen crust work well if you don’t want to make the crust.

I also have a giveaway starting today for you all. It’s a great prize and I am also sharing the recipe for the pie crust from scratch there too. So be sure to check out the giveaway page today.
