    He says he is the FAVORITE son-in-law. I say he is the ONLY son-in-law! All kidding aside, I dedicate this pie recipe to my son-in-law Don, who is ill with terminal cancer. This one's for you, Don! (Cooking time includes cooling time)

      This was also my first time making a CCP. I'm not a huge coconut "nut" but my hubby is. We all enjoyed it. It was pretty simple to make and yielded good flavor and texture. Used a graham cracker crust.

      This was my very first homemade coconut cream pie, and it was wonderful! I used real whipped cream since I had some that had to be used. An honor to your son-in-law.
