A good basic coconut pie recipe...the buttermilk gives it a rich flavor, I think. I made 6 of these in 1 week- 5 were for a church dinner. I used the "Bakers secret pie crust" on this same site.
i was really hoping for a delicious pie. ack! the pie has been in the refrigerator for six days (only 2 slices have been tasted)... We did not care for this pie. "Grandma's coconut pie" is much more appetizing than this one. (in addition, this pie is greasy.)
Wonderful custard flavor! This is one of the most delicious coconut pies I have ever tasted. Its so amazing to me that the coconut and pecans float to the top, while the custard part stays on the bottome. I was afraid it would all blend together! Thanks Shirley.
"WOW. Did I really make this myself?? Because it tastes like something from a 5-star restaurant"--that is what I thought every time I took a bite. SO EASY yet SO SO SO yummy and unique. I used home-made pie crust and half of the butter and can't imagine it any better. Did I mention this pie is amazing?
Wow! This pie is going to be replacing my regular coconut pie recipe. It is so simple to put together - just takes a couple of minutes, and the flavor is outstanding. I wasn't sure about pecans in a coconut pie, but they go great together. I filled 2 regular pie crusts and had a little bit left over so I grabbed my small cast iron skillet and poured the remainder in it and threw it in the oven for about 15 minutes and it was great even without a crust.
This was awesome! Loved the taste-very rich.
I prepared this for our Thanksgiving dinner and I had to hide the last piece so that I could take home the leftovers!
