No question  I like Coconut Cream Pie very much ... it's creamy coconut custard on the flaky crust with whipped cream on the top... Heaven ;-).  Yesterday without any plan ...I was craving Coconut Cream Pie, I could go to Pie shop near my house  .. and buy it, but I already at home after work. It was so hot outside, I didn't care to go out. So I checked  my pantry ...Voila..I got all the ingredients for making one.
