Thanksgiving Pies

Well, I *just* got done making all my pies for this Thanksgiving! Here’s my inventory that I started with:

…and ten hours later here are most of the pies (I always make 25+ pies for a church that serves lunch on T’giving for a big crowd of hungry people in their neighborhood, plus another couple for Av’s family’s Thanksgiving). Below are pumpkin, pecan, apple, hot fudge, and buttermilk coconut pies.

If you like coconut pies, here’s the recipe I use – it’s soooo simple, and the pie always turns out *wonderfully*:

Buttermilk Coconut Pie
1-1/2 c. sugar
2 Tbsp. flour
1 stick butter
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 c. buttermilk
1 tsp. vanilla
grated coconut – use as much or as little as you like – I use about 1/3 the bag per pie
pie crust

Preheat the oven to 350*. Meanwhile, mix everything together. Once the oven gets to 350*, pour the mixture into your pie crust, and bake for 45 -60 minutes. When the top gets golden and doesn’t jiggle in the middle, it’s done!
