My MIL is the BEST pie maker as was her mother before her. Just this past Halloween she dropped off a pumpkin pie that was so far superior to every other pumpkin pie that I hesitate to even call it that (she says she uses a dozen eggs for 2 large pies which if you know something about pumpkin pie, and I don't, means something).
I want to challenge her to create the ultimate coconut cream pie which in my opinion is served at Phillipe's in LA. I know I can go up there and bring a piece home to her and let her try to recreate it, but...I thought I'd see if anyone had already done this experiment and had a recipe to share to point her on her way.
For those of you that don't live in LA, if by some miracle someone posts a recipe to this board, and you like coconut, MAKE THIS PIE!
