i'm coo-coo for coconuts! bring on tha crunk part deux

another vegan crunk recipe. i'll tell you what, her granny rocks. i don't know many vegans who have such dedicated family members that take their old skool recipes and veganize them for their vegan loved ones. how precious! this is called "old fashioned coconut pie"
i'm sure you've all heard the term "sugar pie". well, now i know where it comes from! this pie is soooo sweet, you're better to have it with a strong cup o' joe (decaf in my case) or top it off with a scoop of vanilla soy delicious to cut the sweetness. this dessert would hands down be the belle of the ball at your next potluck or the perfect alternative to pumpkin pie at the holidays.
i made one big pie to eat for dessert for the week and these gnawdorable mini-pies for labor day. i just took the crust, cut it out with a wide mouth glass, put them in muffin tins, and filled them with the filling prior to baking.

yeah-yeah, the recipe? sorry that's classified information, sweetie pies. you'll just have to buy the cookbook when it comes out.
