Let me make this emphatic disclaimer, from the outset. THIS is decadently creamy, richly delicious and soul-satisfying, once-in-a-blue-moon dessert. It is NOT what we eat everyday, (but, oh Baby, you will be tempted. :) ) and no one is more aware than myself, that it has no redeeming health properties, whatsoever. Please don’t send me email. I’ll be forever grateful. :) That being said, proceed with great delight and prepare to enjoy a little slice of heaven! When you make this for guests, they will swoon. Your kitchen will become hallowed ground and people will travel to pay homage to your cast iron skillet. Well…maybe not travel…but they WILL tell people. And, they’ll want seconds!
As is often the case for me, a recipe first jumps out at me from a photo on Pinterest and this yummy pie did exactly that. It led me to a recipe called Mamaw Pie over at I Should Be Mopping the Floor. I could tell, right away, that Kristi and I have the same love of cooking and the photos on her blog just sort of sucked me into this dazed pinning frenzy, which delayed my preparing this recipe for a day or two. As always, I put my own spin on things, using ingredients my family enjoys or that I had on hand, but Kristi’s Mamaw is my hero and most definitely the inspiration for this new special occasion family recipe. I hope you’ll try Caramel Fudge Coconut Cream Pie. Enjoy!
