Wow, I hadn't thought about Coconut Cream Pie for a long time. Guess I haven't been in a diner for quite awhile. You know where they have the pies in those display cases. And that reminds me of Boston Cream Pie which I haven't seen for a long time either.

Hey Nomadicus after posting the PB pie to you guess what I am enjoying right now???? Crust is so flaky, filling is luscious and the whipped topping is fresh yum yum.

Now onto your new question...... I have never made a key lime does it set up or is it creamy type filling? I suppose you might try putting the base of key lime putting in the fridge to let it set up firm then put your coconut filling on top. Are you using meringue or whipped topping? I think with the meringue you could put it under your broiler to brown along with your pre- toasted coconut.

Just had a thought what about a small dusting of powdered sugar between layers to help keep them separated??????

I didn't think of the barrier layer. Powered sugar maybe just what the chef ordered. Key lime does setup firm more so than coconut so I think the coconut goes on top with a whipped cream topping. Calories for the week in a slice. That's how I'll bill it. My story and I'm not changing it.

Made the toll house pie today. Yummy! Lots of homemade whipped cream to top it cause I made a mistake at Costco's & bought heavy cream containers instead of half & half for the coffee. Hubby has loved the heavy cream in his coffee too!

I heard a story today about a lady in Texas whose grandmother owned a corner bakery, and baked the best pies for miles around.

Grandma died many years ago, and the bakery has now sadly gone, but her grand-daughter (now in her 60s) has the original 'from scratch' recipe for the Banana Cream Pie that made granny famous, and continues to make it at home by the dozen, for local customers to order. I have to find this pie-maker and try out these famous pies. Will report back.....

Please do. Banana cream is a favorite that I justify as it has potassium that I need.

Speaking of layered coconut pie, this one doesn't have key lime, and it's waaay too labor intensive, but is also absolutely awesome...

This may be labor intensive but looks worth every second of it. That is if you like coconut like I do. Thanks for the link. It is in my bookmarks for treats now.

I love this thread but sure am enjoying your way of thinking Normadicus! The humor seems to lessen the 'sin' of divulging in calorie laden pie.
