My mom is not feeling well and coconut cream pie is her favorite. She said it was the only thing that tasted good to her and she loved it. I used Pillsbury's refrigerator pie crust and had trouble with my meringue so I topped the pie with some coconut. Very easy to make and cant wait to try it with bananas. Thank you sweetie for sharing your recipe. Made and reviewed for the Potluck Tag Game.
