Turkey Day staging..Gobble..Gobble..This is a favorite recipe that has been on many fancy buffets and originally was credited to Mamie Eisenhower..The coconut is limited to the top of the cream piping adorning the pie & therefore is not a central component..The Pumpkin flavor is much more pronounced & dominant and as Turkey Day is right around the corner this is a nice compliment to the more traditional fare of Thanksgiving foods..
