Coconut Cream Pie

Hi all!  I just found out I am a finalist in Cooking Channel’s Perfect 3 Contest.  My entry is a coconut cream pie, affectionately titled “Lorie’s Ultimate Coconut Cream Pie.”  This pie is very near and dear to my heart because, after having many failures with coconut pies, I started experimenting and I managed to create what was my idea of the ultimate coconut pie.  To me, a good coconut pie has to have a nice, flaky crust and a smooth and luscious thick cream filling that tastes like coconut, not just like vanilla pastry cream that has coconut stirred into it.  To top it off, I simply must have freshly whipped and sweetened cream because I’m a whipped cream girl, not a meringue girl.

I would love it if you would take a look and if you think it sounds like something you might like, cast your vote for me.  Grand prize is a trip to New York in June to film a segment with Kelsey Nixon for the Cooking Channel.  Voting goes through May 26 and you can vote up to ten times a day.

I will be back soon with another recipe!

    The links you’ve posted don’t seem to lead to the recipe anymore. Have you posted it elsewhere? If not, will you post it? I’d love to try your recipe.

    This looks incredible. My boyfriend just looked over at the computer and said, “Make that!”

    Congrats on the cooking channel nomination. Good luck!

    I didn’t know you could vote ten times a day! I’ll go vote some more. I want to make this pie next time my family gets together. It looks amazing!
