This is one of my favorite recipes for an easy and delicious “melt-in-your-mouth” pie. The recipe is from my dear aunt Janey Slay of Clinton, one of the sweetest people I know and love. She would bring this pie to family reunions, picnics, and holiday parties. Everyone always loved the sweet coconut flavor, and it became known as “Sweet Aunt Janey’s Coconut Chess Pie.” Prepare it and share it with someone special or plan a family reunion and take Aunt Janey’s pie. It is sure to be enjoyed!
