Do you have any community cookbooks? You know, the cute cookbooks where grannies, or moms or firefighters get together, share their favorite recipes and then make a cookbook to raise money? I recently inherited one such cookbook from my mother titled Polish Foods as we Remember created by the Golden Age Club from Assumption Church in Oil City, Pennsylvania in 1977. I used this cookbook to create my whole Easter feast, as well as making this Coconut Custard Pie for a new mom at my church. It was super easy, was in the oven with about 5 minutes prep time, and was ready to go to the new mom in an hour. You'll love the ease of it, plus the subtle sweetness and the crunch of the coconut.
