Reviews for Easy Coconut Pie
"making this but not without adding 2 things to make it an "Almond Joyfull" pie. < my favorite candy bar. I've even made home made Almond joyous' bars. Will add mini chocolate chips as well as sliced toasted almonds on top . whether good or not so good I'll report.WMLadded:1/2c mini choco chips1/2c sliced almonds to the top1/2c more coconut than called forfinale: crazy good!!!!!"
"This was delicious and extremely easy. I've never seen an easier recipe for a pie, and pie is fancy enough for a special occasion or to take to someone's house. I added a half cup of chocolate chips. They sunk to the bottom but added a nice flavor. Next time I might drizzle chocolate on top of the pie. I will make this recipe again!"
"This is the ultimate classic coconut pie! I make according to the directions and I use the blender, it makes cleanup very easy. This pie can be in the oven in no time. For the first time, I tried replacing the milk for low-fat yogurt. It worked beautifully. As a volunteer field editor for Taste of Home magazine, I love classic recipes that bring back many memories!"
"Love this recipe!! We have chickens and this will be my go to for extra eggs! I added some nutmeg to the egg mixture and stirred it differently so I don't need a blender. It turns out pretty smooth. I whisk flour, salt and eggs with some nutmeg. Melt butter and add milk and vanilla. Then whisk together the egg mixture with the milk mixture. Stir in coconut! Excellent. Thanks for posting."
"Does this pie need refrigerated?"
"Good recipe. I followed suggestions from others and used coconut milk instead of regular milk. I also cut the sugar down to slightly less than 3/4 cup. I followed the suggestion from another reviewer and did not make it in the blender; I used my mixer instead. Everyone liked this. This is easy to make, and I will make it again."
"So delicious and it couldn't be easier!"
"This pie is so easy and delicious. Even people who do not like coconut have had this when I make it and love it. I have been making it since it came out in one of the Taste of Home cookbooks years ago. I use organic unsweetened coconut and organic ready to use unsweetened coconut milk since I can not use regular milk in desserts I eat. Sugar can be reduced to 3/4 cup and if you want even more coconut flavor add 1/4tsp real coconut extract. I get a lot of requests for this recipe."
"I didn't care for it. But others did so I will make it again. I thought it would taste more like coconut but to me it was more like custard, which I don't care for. Since some in the family loved it, I will make it ."
"An absolute favorite in our home. Warm coconut custard pie. MMM"
"If you like flan... then you will probably like this. My kids did not like it at all. I personally thought it was ok.. (i like flan). It was fast and easy to make but it was not a 5 star recipe.. Better coconut recipes out there."
"I first made this back in 1998 when it was first published in TOH. It's so simple & quick to make it feels like cheating! Yummy, tastes great warm or cold. We like it with a dollop of whipped cream on top."
"this takes me back to my childhood after dancing school we go to this little restaurant for lunch and coconut pie yumm"
"Very easy to make but the 'crust' was a little soggy and weird tasting. what formed into the top part was good though."
"yum! soo easy to make and tastes great"
"It's simple to make, and always turns out good."
"I just joined this web site! I made this recipe when it was first published years ago. I have since lost it and am SO excited that I was able to find it again! Thank you, Taste of Home!! Love y'all!!"
