    I LOVE this pie! Simple in both method & taste, the finished product highlights the vanilla & coconut flavors without a bunch of other things trying to compete. I used 2% milk & heavy whipping cream (I didn't know what 35% cream was) & could not be happier with the final result. Thank you for sharing, City_Gurl! Made & enjoyed for Fall 2009 Pick A Chef. :)
