    Luby Luby Luby's Note:

    This is one of Emeril Lagasse's recipes and it is wonderful. The coconut custard is so smooth, creamy and absolutely luscious. The original recipe called for unsweetened flaked coconut, but I use sweetened because I'm unable to find unsweetened and I think you can substitute without an adverse affect. I also cut the vanilla in half and only use 1 teaspoon. I make the meringue while waiting for the milk mixture to scald to save on time. The original recipe calls for a whipped cream topping, but I use a meringue so use whichever one you prefer.
