Holiday Pies
(Coconut, banana, & chocolate.)

Coconut Pie
2/3 cup sugar
4 tablespoons flour
3 cups milk
3 egg yolks slightly beaten
1 tablespoon butter
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 pie crust
(optional – cool whip or whipping cream)

Mix flour and sugar well, pour into saucepan, add milk, egg yolks, vanilla and stir. Mix on a medium heat to stir continually. Keep stirring continually as this will thicken. Keep watch on the heat as you may need to turn it down. Stir until the pie filling is thicker than pudding. Then take off the stove to let it cool.
Cook crust before starting pie filling and let it cool. Fold in shredded coconut into pie mix right before pouring into crust. Let pie cool before topping. You can use the whites for the meringue to top your pie or your favorite whipping cream.

Banana Cream pie
Same ingredients and directions. Line crust with banana slices before adding pie filling mix. You can also use the whites for a meringue or whipping cream.

Chocolate Pie
Same ingredients except you use 1 1/2 cups of sugar and 3 tablespoons powdered cocoa. It takes the extra sugar to balance out the powdered cocoa. You can use the whites for the meringue or whipping cream to top pie
I use a small container of fresh whipping cream and whip this. While whipping add sugar to taste as whipping to firm peaks.
