Today on the tray: Coconut cream pie

Ginger and Mary Ann with coconut cream pieMay 8 is National Coconut Cream Pie Day.

I can’t hear “coconut cream pie” without thinking of Gilligan’s Island. Remember how Mary Ann was always baking them?

To celebrate this special day, let’s have fun watching various Gilligan’s Island characters get pies in the face:

And as a special treat, here is Mary Ann’s portrayer, Dawn Wells, baking a coconut cream pie for Conan O’Brien in 1993, while promoting Mary Ann’s Gilligan’s Island Cookbook:
