Coconut Pie from North Carolina

Lynnda Cloutier


This recipe came from The Pie Lady from North Carolina, who was active in her church and who specialized in truly Southern cakes and pies. This is one of the simplest recipes for a delicious dessert. If you use a store bought crust, you make have a little extra filling left over. Whipped cream can be piped in a crisscross pattern on top of pie just before serving. This is a very sweet pie and a little goes a long way.
