Hawaiian Pie

In the 1960's my mother used to make the most delicious cold pie she called Hawaiian Pie. It used a prebaked coventional piecrust, and was filled with a layer of bananas and pecans, then a cooked custard filling, then more bananas, pecans and coconut, topped with whipped cream and more coconut.


I have looked for this recipe everywhere and have been unsuccessful. Did she make this recipe up? After my mother's death my stepmother got rid of all her cookbooks as she didn't cook. So I can't ask my mother and can't go through her recipes. I'm lost!

I've looked on the internet, but none of the recipes I've found have been the one. You had to let this pie set in the icebox for a day before eating and I would count the hours. I could eat a whole one by myself. Please, someone out there have this recipe from my childhood!

carolb, that is the one!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't believe you found it so fast! I had looked all over and never found the exact one, but the one you found is the one she made. I am forever in your debt. Shirley, please make this pie, but be aware that it is the best thing you will ever eat and you might want to eat the whole pie by yourself! Delicious!

Hooray Susan!!!!
Just lucky I guess! I saw alot of other recipes too, but they didn't have the nuts in them. And it really sounds good -- I'll have to try that myself too!!!!

Village Inn has a great Hawaiian Pie and I am looking for the recipe. It had a cream cheese base in pie shell, coconut, pecans and pineapple and the top layer was strawberries, pineapple and coconut.


Does anyone have this recipe?
