      I tried the banana version of this pie minus the meringue. It is very good and easy to make as well.

      This recipe is as good as Nancy says it is! I decreased the amount of sugar to 2/3 cup and added 1 cup of coconut for a delicious coconut cream pie. It was not difficult at all to prepare, and it passed the "Male Taste Test" with flying colors! I am anxious to make all the varieties of cream pies with this recipe. Thanks, Nancy! June Jackson

      It was pretty good. I made my own crust and with salted butter and it was a perfect balance of sweet and salty so yummy. I do wish that the creme wasn't so sweet so next time I will add less sugar and more flour to make it thicker. When I baked it the cream had some syrup in the pan where the creme had melted a little. But yummy taste! The meringue I had trouble keeping it up and so it was weeping but great overall!! :)
