Recipe: Coconut Pie

This recipe for a delicious coconut pie that’s just a little different…. a different version of coconut custard pie. The coconut is mixed throughout the pie and the custard. The taste is delicious… the texture is different. I was looking for something easy and different…

If you’re looking for a very quick and tasty dessert… this is it…. I found the recipe at …. They call it Impossible Coconut Pie II…..I liked the recipe and thought I’d try it… but I did read the reviews first…

I did make some changes based on reviews… many of the reviewers said it was too sweet… the recipe called for ¾ cup sugar…so I cut back on the sugar by about ¼ of a cup… next time I will use the full ¾ cup…possibly 1 cup of sugar… we thought the cut-back version was not quite sweet enough. .

I used sweetened coconut … the recipe didn’t specify… the recipe called for margarine… I used butter because it was what I had on hand… it didn’t specify melted or softened… so I used softened butter…. I put it in the micro for a minute or so… it was very soft.

I followed some of the reviewers’ advice… I used 2 whole eggs and 2 egg yolks… the original recipe called for 4 eggs…. and finally … the recipe said to sprinkle the nutmeg on top… I mixed it in.

The original recipe said to bake it for 45 minutes…. you need to bake it for 60 minutes.

The pie cut perfectly after it had been in the refrigerator about an hour.

This pie is a great dessert… and we will definitely make it again.

I hope you try it and enjoy!
