Cream and Coconut Cream Pies

Dinner in 3, 2, 1 Followers…you’re in for a real treat! My Mom made the long journey from Kentucky to Texas (17 hour drive to be precise) and is sharing her famous Cream and Coconut Cream Pie recipes! She’s made these pies in various flavors my whole life and gets requests to make them all the time. Even if you may not give it a try, it’s truly an art just to watch her make them. They’re beautiful, delicious and taste just like home. I love my Mom!

Ingredients

  • Filling:
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 12 oz Carnation Evaporated Milk
  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
  • 2 BAKED 9” pie shells
  • Meringue:

  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 heaping spoonfuls marshmallow cream
  • Recipe

    In a saucepan, whisk together sugar and flour. Add egg yolks and evaporated milk and mix well. Add milk and mix well. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly. As the sugar dissolves, add butter and continue stirring. Cook until mixture thickens and the mixture bubbles/burps. Pour half of the mixture into one cooled/baked pie shell. Fold ¼ cup coconut into the remaining mixture, and fill the other shell. Spread meringue on top, and sprinkle coconut on meringue of the coconut pie. Bake at 350ºF for 15 minutes.

    This was my very first recipe ever making a meringue pie!! Both flavors were delicious and a huge favorite of my family! Also, the recipe was easy to follow, even for a beginner, but the end product was very impressive!!

    This is the best meringue recipe I have ever tried! The pies are delicious too. I’ve shared the recipes several times already and am always glad to tell people “this is my friend Laura’s mom’s recipe”😊 – and share how they can get more of your recipes!

    I was telling my Mom this morning that i was going to attempt Phyllis’s pies. She knew exactly what i was referring to. You had made them for Mom when you came to Winter Haven to visit. She is so excited!

    The coconut recipe only says to add 1/4 cup of coconut to the second pie. What about the first pie
