Description

This quick little dessert is similar to a coconut custard pie, but this one makes its own crust! My grandma has been making this for years and I didn’t know how ridiculously easy it was until I made one myself.

Ingredients

  • 2 whole Eggs, Beaten
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 4 Tablespoons Self-rising Flour Or Bisquick
  • 3-½ ounces, fluid Sweetened, Flaked Coconut

Preparation

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and mix well. Pour into a 9-inch buttered glass pie plate. Bake at 350 F for 30 minutes. Broil for 2 to 3 minutes if you want the top toasty.

Did I mention that it makes its own crust?

So simple, so delicious, and still purely homemade! A hit wherever I go!

I finally got a chance to make this and I will definitely be making it again. I was a little worried at first because when 30 minutes was up, it was a big sloshing puddle in the middle still. So I had to bake mine an extra 10 minutes and by that time the top was nice and toasty. It turned out great! Thanks so much for sharing!

It’s not going to form a flaky pie crust, but it does get firmer on the bottom than it does in the center.

I made this last night and it didn’t form a “crust” like I thought it would. The bottom was kind of mushy. However, it was still pretty good, especially when it cooled down. Coconut and I get along well.

I finally got to make this! I had sent the recipe to my SIL who then shared it with her friend who ended up making two for a party she had. Everyone at the party loved it! Then we made one for dinner and we didn’t even let it cool. It tasted so good, warm or cold. And it couldn’t have been easier to make. Very good and much easier than pie!
