    This is it! Yahoo! I have found it! I have scoured the Internet and this is just like Momma used to make! You are obviously a seasoned cook because you temper your eggs, knowlegde only real cooks are privy to. The custard will look like custard, not like the results of Custer's last stand!

    Love coconut and many other deserts that use tropical fruits and extracts. This one really is extra creamy. Great recipe, Shirley! ^5...

    I have to try this - funny thing is, everytime I think of coconut cream pie, I think of "Gilligan's Island" - didn't they eat that all the time? LOL
