Cool, creamy and oh-so simple to make, this Easy Coconut Cream Pie totally lives up to its name. It’s got only a handful of ingredients and is prepped in just 20 minutes. It’s the perfect dessert for when you’re planning a big get-together-make it ahead of time and it will happily chill in the fridge ’til your guests arrive.
The recipe comes from Vera Moffitt of Oskaloosa, Kansas, and she knows a thing or two about making this pie. “It’s been a family-favorite dessert since the ’40s, when I made several of these pies to serve a threshing crew of 21 men,” she says. When a dessert has been that popular for decades, you know it has to be something special.
We’d gladly dig our forks in any time of year, but the fact that this pie comes together without the need to be popped into the oven makes it ideal for summertime shindigs, just like the rest of our favorite no-bake pies.
