We top this with sliced bananas, whipped cream and more sliced bananas. It's based on a recipe my mom got from a pot holder she bought at the Patti's 1880s Settlement in Grand Rivers, Kentucky. —Jennifer Choisser, Paducah, Kentucky

"Very easy and convenient using a good quality store-bought crust and carton of egg whites. My husband loves anything with coconut in it. Next time I will put the banana slices on top which will take it up a notch from good to very good."

"This was very easy and convenient using a good quality store-bought pie crust and a carton of egg whites. My husband loves anything with coconut in it. I didn't read the blurb by the cook and so did not put banana slices on top. I will definitely do that next time, as I think it will take this recipe from the good to the very good category."
