Coconut Meringue Pie

I made 5 of these the other day.  Three to sell at our Fireman's fund raiser and 2 for Mother's Day

 Here's my proof, and don't worry mine are low in calories too. 
 If you believe that I've got property for sale.  
EACH pie has:
5 eggs (homegrown, that is why it is so yellow in the middle)
1 ENTIRE can Cream of Coconut
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Coconut 
+ some butter and misc other goodies
and then the crust and meringue.
Now if that isn't low calorie what is?

I had some left over and brought it home.....talk about a mistake.
When I was dating my husband he bought me one and before the weekend was over I ate the entire pie all by myself, now you understand why this was a mistake to bring it home.

I have posted the recipe for the crust on my blog and it is a simple one, but still my favorite crust ever...Flakey, easy and can make ahead.....honest.

Thanks for visiting my "flakey" part of the country,

  2. You know that is my favorite pie and yet you have never made me one....just sayin
