White Christmas Pie

"Found this recipe in a Christmas book of the same name by Wanda Brunstetter. The book was sweet story about a young Amish couple and the pie sounds wonderful. Sure haven't tried it yet but want to for Christmas so am putting it here to save. Finally made this (for Spring and not Christmas) and it was very good. It is sweet and I used sweetened flaked coconut so next time may use unsweetened. But very light, fresh and pretty - a lovely desert to impress with. I'm wondering how it would be with a meringue topping!"

    This is a recipe my late Grandmother made every year for Christmas and Thanksgiving. I have taken over making it since she passed so we can have a little part of her memory with us on these holidays. She made 3...one like this, one with crushed pineapple, and my kids' favorite, with chopped mandarin oranges.

    I originally got this recipe from my mom. Nice to see it here. <br/>I use a different method for mixing....Whisk dry ingredients (including gelatin), then whisk in milk. MICROWAVE for about 5 minutes total, stirring every minute or so until it comes to a boil. Then continue the recipe as instructed. <br/>SERVE with raspberry sauce (I use Danish Dessert and frozen raspberries. YUM!
