Susan BerryWith Summer right around the corner what better desert to serve than a cool creamy pie? My favorite is Coconut Cream. I love anything made with coconut, and I love custards and pastry cream type deserts. So this combination is a winner any day for me.

It is easy, takes a little time but, to save on the clock, I prepare my pie crust the day or evening before and set aside, covered on the counter top. Don't store a baked pie crust in the fridge because it can absorb moisture and get soggy.

For a tropical fling, I sometimes add 1/2 cup very well-drained and squeezed out crushed pineapple to the custard just after it thickens. The pineapple and coconut together really make it a tropical cream delight.
