    Default Pink Apple Crumb & Coconut Cream Pies

    These are the two pies my daughter and I made for Thanksgiving up at the
    folks' place. It was Alexis' first time making a pie by herself from start
    to finish. We bought the crust at Trader Joe's since an emergency dentist
    appointment for my mom cut us short on time, but it was delicious. The pink
    came from pomegranate juice, which was her idea, and a good one. The
    sweet-tart flavor was perfect contrast to the crumb top she made with dark
    brown sugar.

    The coconut pie turned out better than I could have hoped for too! I
    "painted" melted chocolate on the baked/cooled crust before I put the
    filling in to keep the crust nice and flakey...hate soggy crusts! I added
    lots of toasted coconut, first on the chocolate, then in the filling, and
    finally, on top of the pie just before serving. Cream of coconut added a lot
    of coconut flavor and a certain decadence to the filling.

    And, they were the first of the pies to be completely devoured, so that must
    say something!

    Anyone who is interested can see pics and such on my blog, and the recipe
    for the coconut pie is already up.

    Both of those pies sound great! I really like the idea of a
    chocolate sealant and must remember that for all compatible pies!

    She did a fabulous job Kimberly. Give her my compliments. I hope I'll
    be able to do as good as she did when I make it.
