“This cherry pie is quite unique. Instead of the usual crust topping, it is topped with a coconut custard. It is from my late mother's recipe file and was given to her by one of her sisters. Enjoy!”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Pour half of the can of cherry pie filling into the pie shell, sprinkle with almond extract, and add the rest of the pie filling.
  3. The almond extract really brings out the flavor of the cherries for a"just picked" taste.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  5. While pie is baking, beat eggs and stir in sugar, lemon juice, vanilla extract and coconut.
  6. Remove pie from oven and pour or spoon egg-coconut mixture over the top of the pie.
  7. Return pie to oven and bake an additional 25-30 minutes or until brown.
