RECIPES FR OM THE PAST: COCONUT CUSTARD PIE

An old fashioned treat that’s always a delicious pie.

                                      COCONUT CUSTARD PIE

This a pie that has lost it’s popularity, yet we find the use of coconut in other manufactured items, from shampoo to cookies to name a few .The recipe was a favorite of my Mom’s, and it must be over a hundred years old.  She used coconut in pies, on top of cakes, in Easter eggs. Cracking a fresh coconut was never a chore for her. Today we can buy our coconut already shredded in a can, just waiting on our creativity.
