Banana cream pie with a toasty coconut crust makes this pie an all-time favorite.
Heat oven to 325°F. Reserve 1/4 cup coconut; set aside.
Combine remaining coconut and butter in medium bowl; press onto bottom and up sides of 9-inch pie pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.
Meanwhile, combine 1/2 cup sugar, flour and salt in 2-quart saucepan; stir in milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a full boil (7 to 8 minutes). Remove from heat. Stir small amount of milk mixture into egg yolks; return to pan. Reduce heat to low. Continue cooking until slightly thickened (1 to 2 minutes). (DO NOT BOIL.) Stir in vanilla. Pour half of hot filling into baked crust; cover with banana slices. Top with remaining filling.
Increase oven temperature to 375°F. Beat egg whites in small bowl at low speed until foamy. Increase speed to high; beat, gradually adding 6 tablespoons sugar, until glossy and stiff peaks form. Spread onto warm filling, sealing to edge of crust. Sprinkle with reserved coconut.
Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 30 minutes at room temperature. Refrigerate at least 3 hours. Store refrigerated.

Fun and strait forward to put together. Only problem with the recipe is that there wasn't enough coconut mixture to completely cover my 9 inch pie pan, so I had to mix up about half a cup more.
Made this pie yesterday as a practice for a gift next week and it is great. Perfect.
Land O Lake is very good . I love to use it. Makes your food better CAN'T TELL IT'S NOT BUTTER. LOVE [LAND O LAKE ]TO BAKE, OR COOK WITH. DORIS MARTIN

We’re entering a new phase in our life as new parents – the dinnertime meltdown stage (or the “witching hour” as I like to call it). We rush home from daycare, singing “Wheels on the Bus” as many times as it takes to keep him entertained on the 10-minute car ride. It’s the same song and dance when we get home, while his daddy finishes up work and I’m hectically trying to empty the dishwasher, make dinner and keep our little guy from hiding the dog food between the couch cushions.
