I am so happy to find a pie recipe of my Grammie's. I wasn't sure if I would or not. I know that Grandpa loved coconut too, so this pie was made quite often. Now, her recipe calls for a meringue topping which is fairly easy to make. It makes this coconut pie a little more fancy for those special occasions and holidays too. I will look forward to making this pie and hopefully make it next month. When I do I will update with pictures and any other detail that Gram may have forgotten.
