This pie was very good instead of using a tablespoon of vanilla extract I used 1 teaspoon and I cooked it a little longer than 30 minutes since I was baking it in a deep dish pie plate Read More

Made for a dinner party and it went over great! Used 2 cups or milk and 1/2 cup of cream as suggested by someone else and sprinkle coconut on top after baking as a garnish. Very creamy! Thanks for sharing! Read More

My improvements are as follows: 2 cups sugar (instead of 1 3/4 c.) and 1 cup of heavy cream (instead of milk). 1. Beat eggs. Add cream vanilla & melted butter. 2. Mix in combined dry ingredients. Thanks Irene for a decade of good Southern dessert-eating! I'll be serving for Christmas this year. Read More

My family makes this pie every Thanksgiving and only the men are allowed to make it. Our version is a little different so we consider it a "secret family recipe." Read More
