Cream pies are a big hit in our family, as well as our friends. This recipe is a basic filling for all cream pies such as coconut, chocolate, pineapple, etc. It is also good for fillings in cakes and desserts. This basic filling is so simple and used in all my cream pies. You can add the egg yolks with all the other ingredients, use a whip tool while stirring with no worry of curdling. I top the pies with Marshmellow Creme Meringue (posted on JAP).
