HAPPY NEW YEAR Pie of the Club members! !
I know at least a few of you are on your way to Washington DC right now to attend
a very historic inauguration event.  Since I’m living abroad, I can tell you that the
election and upcoming inauguration (which probably happened by the time you read this)
of this new president has brought a tangible and electric sense of excitement and hope
to our neighbors around the globe. Its a good feeling. Well done you Americans!
Anyway. Thanks to the magic of the 21st century here is a pie recipe  from the
“Obama Family Cookbook “ that was printed in the CLeveland  Plain Dealer newspaper.
And! according to an article in the Washington Post today “ the president-elect has shown a clear interest in pie.”  Shazam!  I hope there is some pie-related stimulus package n the works for the country!
This one is quite similar to  the “impossible” pie that was
featured as the pie of the month  a couple years back…  Enjoy!
The Obama Family’s Crustless Coconut Pie

Cream butter and sugar with mixer.  Add eggs, one at a time.  Add milk and flour until blended. Stir in coconut, nutmeg and vanilla.
