Rum Cream Pie (my family calls it 80 proof pie)

S Slater


I saved this years ago from a Bacardi Rum recipe book. I made it during Christmas one year without thinking about the fact the rum isn't cooked looked so good, all my nieces and nephews wanted a slice. Luckily my brother, who was a Police Officer at the time, was the first to try it. He laughingly proclaimed each slice to be 80 proof to which he added, "how would you like to be pulled over and have to explain to the Officer you only had one piece of pie?" Needless to say the kids were kept away but it sure was a hit with the adults. ~Hope you enjoy.

** careful, the Rum is not cooked out and the amount to add is not a typo, it's a little strong but if you like rum, it's wonderful!

good add-in's are coconut flakes, a little coconut cream or even bananas
