This past Sunday, for Easter, our neighbor Marilyn brought over a beautiful pie. And it tasted wonderfully delicious, at least the last piece did as by the time I got to it, that was all that was left in the pan.
Marilyn had also given us the pie pan used to cook it in. Isn't she a sweetheart? She swears by it, an aluminum 8-inch wide, 1-inch deep pan that really does perform well. Made by Ware-Ever, it won't set your pocketbook back either.
Now, about that pie, she called it a French Coconut Pie. Well, I don't care what country it comes from, I'm just glad she made it for us. Full of coconut with just enough lemon to round out the filling. Sweet and yummy! Go ahead and give this one a try, Marilyn shared her recipe. I told you she is a sweetheart. Enjoy!
