Genny's Story

I love Coconut Cream Pie and Banana Cream Pie. Combining the two makes the best of two worlds. This recipe is tried and true. You won't be disappointed...I promise.


3 c
flaked coconut
7 Tbsp
butter or margarine
3/4 c
1/4 c
all purpose flour
3 Tbsp
1/4 tsp
3 c
light cream
egg yolks, lightly beaten
2 tsp
vanilla extract
large firm bananas, sliced
optional: whipped cream

Directions Step-By-Step

In a skillet, saute coconut in butter until golden. Press all but 2 tablespoons into the bottom and up the sides of a greased 9" pie plate. Bake at 350 for 7 minutes.
In a saucepan, combine the sugar, flour, cornstarch and salt. Gradually add cream and bring to a boil. Cook and stir constantly for 2 minutes. Add a small amount to egg yolks. Return all to pan; cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat; add vanilla. Cool to room temperature.
Place sliced bananas in the crust. Cover with cream mixture. Chill until set, about 2 hours. Sprinkle with reserved coconut. If desired, garnish with whipped cream and bananas.

Genny, I don't know how I missed this pie when you first put it on here. Love this plus it's coconut.....mmmmmmm....and a great way to use bananas too. You live in such a beautiful part of the country but I imagine you get lots of snow during the winter too, am I right?? Anyway, love this dessert and so will my family when I make it.

Gosh, Cin...don't you just hate that. I agree, good help is so hard to find. I'm sorry to hear that you are going through all this trouble. It seems when it pours! Hang in there! This too shall pass, as my sweet, dear grandma used to say. Oh Man, would I of loved to been there with you when you went to the diamond mine. I LOVE digging for gems! I have dug for garnets before, and even for crystals. I got hooked on it when my brother introduced me to it many years ago. He is an avid rock and gem hound. Take good care dear. Love ya!

Doing great...resting today. We left Wednesday and went to Murfeesboro, AR to dig in the State Park Diamond Mine. Got back home last evening and boy were we tired. Digging in the dirt and doing the wet wash to look for diamonds was hot in the sun.
NOPE...didn't find even one!!! Notta, none...boohoo =;o(.

Then to top off the ending of a nice week together, when we got home our hot water tank had blown a seal on the gasket, leaked all over the basement floor.... and when we turned on any of the hot water faucets it flowed out "blue water".
Cold water faucets were fine. ANYWAY....had the plumber out this morn, he flushed the hot water tank out and put on a new seal on the gasket.
When he left he said "it should be fine now, if not give me a call".
Right......5 minutes after he left it was "leaking". We called him and he said "I am on my way to another job, I'll be back over to your place Monday".
Seems that good help is nonexistent anymore.
