Old-Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

We were having a group meeting at our church a few months back, and it was my turn to bring in the dessert. Now, I’m no expert when it comes to baking. I can cook, but baking, not my thing. So, I half debated on just grabbing a pie from the bakery. I didn’t have anything else to do though, so I figured I should really surprise the ladies and bring in a homemade dish. They all knew how much I loved to bake, and I think a few actually laughed when they heard it was my turn for dessert.

I decided to look online and see if I could find something to make. I knew that I would definitely have to follow a recipe to get something that was at least edible. I found a recipe for coconut cream pie on All Recipes and figured that it was worth a shot.

The directions seemed like something I could handle, so I did a practice run. It actually turned out very tasty! I had a friend stop by the day after I made it and she said that it was very good, and worthy of taking out to the public. Finally, I am a baker!
