Yes, you read that title right.  Best EVER.  And, I do mean ever!  This coconut pie has stood the test of time, & has been passed down 2 generations.

It originally came from my great grandmother, and calls for just a handful of basic items.  The simple ingredients come together to make a sensual creamy coconut experience.
