Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

I have been wanting to share this recipe for awhile now but just kept forgetting. Seems like my tastebuds went to savory side during New Years holidays, so I wanted to change things up a bit. Today I am bringing you a recipe for a sweet treat which also happens to be one of my favorite old fashioned desserts. Coconut Cream Pie!!!
I love just about any cream pie whether it’s banana, chocolate or coconut. I do have to say this is the best coconut cream pie I have tasted.
