Many years ago, when I was in grade school, I attended Catholic school. My mom used to bake one of these pies, every couple of weeks, to take to the rectory for the parish priests. It wasn't long before one of the sisters asked me if my mom might bake one of those delicious coconut pies for them too. So, it became a ritual for my mom to bake these and deliver them to the parish priests and nuns every few weeks. She enjoyed doing it and I always secretly thought those coconut pies did "wonders" for my report cards. :-)
This pie was posted in Midwest Living magazine many years ago and was served to President Truman at one time. The rich creamy filling topped with crunchy pecans makes this pie no one can refuse. Try it. You'll like it!
A quick, yummy pie with a hint of refreshing citrus. Perfect for cook-outs or other get togethers because in makes 2 pies at once. Given to me by a coworker who always has the perfect recipe! (Refrigeration time listed as cook time.)
Nothing lo fat or lo cal about this baby! It's rich, and it's chocolate, and will satisfy even the wildest chocolate cravings!!
Just a note, have everything to hand, and pre-measured...times are rough guesses.
This is so easy and taste just like lemon pie. I gave my neighbor some squash and she in return gave me this recipe. I made it and my dh loved it. One large yellow squash is enough for two pies. The first time I made it, I used 1 teaspoon orange extract because I did'nt have lemon and I added fresh lemon juice to it. Tasted just like lemon pie! I wish I could give this 5 stars!!! Well really, I do!
I ate this pie a few years ago and it was delicious. This recipe is from my Aunt Sue. See the note at the bottom about how to make this pie dairy-free. The cook time is the time to chill, and the prep time is an estimate.
