THIS RECIPE IS SIMILIAR TO ONE MY MOM USE TO MAKE WHEN I WAS A KID. She called it Egg Custard with Coconut, I have since learned that the name in many cookbooks it is called French Coconut Pie. It is great any time of the year, especially during the holidays, mama always made it during CHRISTmas & Thanksgiving,so I am sharing it with you. It doesn't get any simplier than when you dump all the ingredients into a bowl & beat with a mixer. My mama never had an electric mixer during my childhood, until much later in her years, after I had left home, so this pie for me shares very fond memories.

5Please note I added my own spin to this recipe, in memory of my Mother during this Holiday season, there was no Splenda back then, and certainly there was no Malibu Rum, and if there was Mama didn't know about it, she used what she got from the Watkins salesman that came around about once per month or so. Hope you like this childhood favorite as much as I do.
