Not really pies made with actual cows, but a whole lot better!

Top Review by chef FIFI

Excellent! I doubled the recipe and made bigger pies so I had a lesser quantity. I added less than called for coconut, and used peanuts instead of almonds. I think the coconut adds that extra kick. Next time I will add more coconut. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.
