French Coconut Pie
My mother, Josephine Murphy, received this recipe from Mrs. Youngerman of Lexington, the mother of a customer at Murphy Tractor Company in Jackson in the late 1950’s. She told her that she had been making this pie for her boys and now their families and that it was a recipe her mother had given her. It has a wonderful texture and taste and is one of my family’s favorites. Oh la la Y'all
1stick butter (melted)
