I am a pie-aholic. Last week I met a girlfriend for coffee and had the most wonderful slice of sour cream raisin pie......now I want coffee and your beautiful custard pie. Maybe I'll have time to whip this up this weekend :)

Blessings!

There is nothing quite like a piece of custard pie. Yours looks really good, I didn't realize that making it into coconut custard was so easy. Yum.
