NATIONAL COCONUT CREAM PIE DAY – When I think of coconut cream pie, It brings to mind the many pie-in-the-face comic pranks I have seen over the years.
Of course, whenever I was involved in any pie-in-the-face events, the entire pie was always made from shaving cream. I think I’d have rather had a real pie smushed in my face. At least it would have tasted good.
The second thing coconut cream pie reminds me of is the dessert display case in diners. The slices of pie usually sit along side the jiggly parfait cup full of green jello (with a dried up dollop of whipped cream on top).
I am not actually sure if I have ever eaten coconut cream pie. It’s not that I don’t think I’d like it but I find it hard to pass up fruit pies. My Gramma only ever made fruit pies so naturally they are my favourites.
Sure enough though, there are many recipes out there for coconut cream pie so if this is your fave dessert, bake yourself one today or find a diner with a groovy display case.
