This recipe is one from my mother's cookbook. Everybody loves it. The lemon flavoring gives it a different twist.

Would work better if you were told to mix sugar and corn starch and the add rest of ingredients. Great pie tho. Dee-licious!!! This reminds me of a coconut pie I had on a tiny island in the Bahamas several years ago. Great Memories and a great pie.
