Frangipani Pie is a tropical dessert that pays tribute to the delicate white and gold fragrant Frangipani flower that blooms in northern tropical Australian coastal areas. This pie is often presented for almost any occasion for celebration. It is displayed generally with float bowls of the Frangipani flowers nearby. This recipe has been made by at least five generations of my family.
