Our friend John from Louisville, Kentucky was visiting last weekend and he only has a few requests while here, lots of shrimp, a good home cooked German dinner and pie. I’ve known John and his wife Karen for almost 20 years and way back when we lived in the same town, we often had dinner parties at their place or mine. Pie was always on the dessert menu. Always. I wanted to make something a little different this time and have been drooling over this recipe lately. Our other dinner party guests that night, Jeff and Norma, adore coconut so I figured I couldn’t really go wrong with this pie. The overwhelming consensus on that wine and beer soaked Saturday night was to declare this pie as simply amazing.
