READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by mew Elaine in MD

Few would know this pie is not coconut. I found the recipe in a community newspaper when vacationing in a very rural area of West Virginia about twenty years ago.

Belated ranking - first tried in Aug/02 and noted as too sweet but reduced sugar to 3/4 cup the next time in Sept/02. Have made this several times since then and handed out recipe upon request.
