    I made this pie yesterday and everyone wanted seconds!!! I followed the recipe ingredients exactly. Some time ago, I saw Martha make a Lemon Meringue Pie by placing all the cookable ingredients into a cold saucepan and slowly bring the liquid mixture to a thickened state, whisking constantly, so I do not use more than the saucepan. It is foolproof and I have been using this method for all my lemon and custard pies! No need to dirty a bowl to temper eggs! Thank you Martha for sharing!

    I made the coconut cream pie today. This pie should be illegal. It is soooo delicious. With each bite my husband so OMG this is so good. I've been baking for over 50 years and thought I had tried it all. I love cream pies(even though I both myself and my hubby shouldn't have them). This isn't a pie I would make all the time. It would be wonderful for special occasions and when company comes around. It is easy to make. I used a Pillsbury pie crust(forgive me Martha). Try it, you will love it
