This pie was awesome. For those who had trouble with it setting up, you MUST bring cream pies to a full bubbling boil. This one said for 1 minute and, after adding yolks, cook 30 seconds longer. My office loved it. My family will also love it at the next get-together!
I made this recipe twice thinking the first failure was my fault... WRONG! This pie doesn't set up.
We have been searching the country over for a good coconut pie recipe to use in our restaurant. My husband is VERY picky.... After many mishaps, we stumbled across this one. It has come out perfect every time (except when I did not let it get to a good boil as recommended). It sells out immediately each time I make some for the restaurant - our most popular pie!
I have several diabetics in my family, so I have made this recipie with Spenda* Sweetener. It gets rave reviews. (The last time my relatives were in, they ate the leftover pie for breakfast.) If you do this, you may want to add a tad more cornstarch, because the non-sugar changes the consistency a little.
One note though: If you like a full pie, you may want to double (or 1 1/2 times) the recipie, I find that the regular recipie is a little scant.
It's a great recipe, but please cook it longer than instructed. I have a digital timer I use and one minute is too short to cook it after it's boiling. Do 2-3 min and 1-2 min after having the egg yolks. Also, I cooled the base overnight(or min 2hrs) before doing my egg topping. I covered the egg whites and whipped them the next day. Additionally, please use an electric mixer on high to make the egg topping. It will take at least 8-10 min of beating. My client was thoroughly pleased. His pie was my second run-through.
Excellent. Just make sure that you boil it for an extra 30 seconds, return it to the heat after putting in the coconut and butter, and allow the pie to cool fully (in the fridge) after baking.
I followed directions and it turned out perfect. I don't use meringue for the top, I always use unsweetened heavy whipping cream.
I really really wanted this to turn out. It's my husband's favoriate pie and I followed it to the tee and it turned out runny! I don't think it was the recipe... i'm sure it was me. He said it tasted like it was supposed to, u just had to eat it with a spoon, and the topping was horrible! I just need step by step directions with mine.
