Bobby G.'s Birthday Pie

I am really, really late or I am really, really early but I wanted to share my Christmas Coconut Cake with you. This is so good and easy to make. I always sugar some holly leaves to decorate the top of the cake and wrap a red ribbon around the bottom.

Coconut Sour Cream Cake

Filling: Mix together the night before and refrigerate one large pack frozen shredded coconut, one 16 oz. carton sour cream and two cups of sugar. Bake a deluxe yellow cake mix according to package directions. When cool slice each layer making 4 layers. Set aside 1/2 to 3/4 cup filling and spread the rest between layers. This is easier if you put the layers in the freezer for a while. Frosting: Mix one 9 oz. carton cool whip with remaining filling and frost top and side of cake. You don't have to but I top the icing with more coconut. This is a pretty cake.

LOL...Now this is not a pretty pie, in fact as I look at the photo it looks like one big mess, but it's a delicious mess and it's Bobby G's all time favorite. I make it every year for his birthday which was day before yesterday. It's rich so we only have a tiny slice and it only takes like two minutes to make.

Cherry Supreme Pie

1 graham cracker crust ( I use Keebler), 1 can sweetened condensed milk, 1 can cherry pie filling, 1/3 cup lemon juice, 1 - 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened. Combine milk, cream cheese and lemon juice in blender or mixer. Pour over crust and top with cherries. Chill until set.

It was shameful.
