Billie Moore was a big, beautiful woman that I remember from early childhood. I think I secretly want to be her. She was a sweet Southern woman, who always smelled wonderful, and brought me the best cookies. I want to honor her by posting her recipes. She is sorely missed.

A very good pie. I do have to say the predominant taste was not coconut. It was more like pecan pie with without the pecans. The recipe was a little confusing. It calls for sugar but did not say how much. I used 2 tablespoons of splenda. I still don't know why the recipe calls for 2 pie crusts. I used two but did not see any difference. Still the pie was good.
