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!
