Coconut-cream pie, a spin-off of custard-cream pie, is a traditional Southern favorite that has moved far beyond the lower regions of the country to more widespread appreciation. This recipe is Martha's version of the classic dessert.

    The video and the link to the printed recipe are different. Martha says sweetened coconut , the text says unsweetened. Martha never mentions the butter in pudding. The recipe says cream of coconut, martha says coconut MILK. Different measurements....Goodness! Enough to make a first time pie baker cry! I had to consult Joy of Cooking as a cross reference....and I used Marthas video for the guide----luckily it turned out wonderful for my husbands 50th birthday. The custard was DIVINE. It did begin to curdle at the end of the low to medium heat, but I saved it by whisking it. The custard seemed just a touch sweeter than I prefer so I might reduce it next time. Even with the issues, I do recommend.

    This pie had a wonderful coconut taste. I am known for my Coconut Cream Pies, but this recipe is one of my new favorites. The only problem was the custard did not set as well as my other recipe. Next time I will use less cream of coconut and use whole milk.

    This is the best coconut cream pie recipe! My mom asks me to make it for her every year as her birthday present. If you're looking for a good recipe for coconut cream pie--this is it. The cream of coconut makes it.

    I leave the meringue off actually, this recipe is fantastic without it! My husband's favorite, I make it for special occasions and because he's diabetic I make it with Splenda! Hope you'll try it without the meringue! It's a definite keeper in my book!

    Hey what's with all the meringue? I like my cream pie with the real stuff. Someone lead me to a whipped cream coconut or chocolate pie. Thanks!
