What You Should Have Seen Yesterday

Yesterday I mentioned that the camera and the memory card had disappeared. Well, they've been found. I do thank you for using your imaginations though as you read this post. Let's see how close you were, shall we?

So, here is what you should have seen yesterday.

The girl's bling...

...that goes with the new wheels...

...and my birthday pie.

And just for kicks, here's my birthday pie recipe. Does it not look scrumptious? I swear it's about the easiest pie you can ever make. Trust me.

Coconut Macaroon Pie

  • 1 1/2 c. sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 c. margarine, softened
  • 1/4 c. flour
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1 1/2 c. coconut, divided

Beat all ingredients but 1/2 c. coconut (keep aside for the topping). Pour into unbaked pie shell and top with remaining 1/2 c. coconut. Bake slowly at 325 for about 1 hour or until set and lightly toasted on top. Note: The pie crust will be very full. I place a cookie sheet in my oven as it is preheating. Once the oven is ready, I place the pie crust on the cookie sheet, pull out the oven rack and pour the filling into the pie crust. Carefully put the oven rack back in place and bake. I always have a little spill but let the cookie sheet soak and clean up is easy.

Happy Birthday! But why, oh why did you have to post that awful, terrible, nasty recipe for macaroon pie? They are my absolute favorite cookies and I certainly don't need a pie that tastes as good! :)
