This pie is wonderful! I've been making this for over 15 years and all of my family has requested it for summer cookouts and get togethers. My sister-in-law's aunt even asked me to make for her to take to her bingo night! I haven't used the egg wash in the body of the pie but have never had an issue with a soggy crust. It's never lasted long enough for it to happen!
This pie is delicious, perfect every time. I do however, brush my crust with egg white before pouring pie mixture in, keeps crust from getting soggy. I also add the yolk from the other egg to mixture as well. I use coconut flavoring, taste divine... easy to make and taste great!!!
The pie was delicious! I always brush the crust with whipped egg white before adding the filling, this seals it so it does'nt ever get soggy. Hope that helps.
If you love coconut, this is a great dessert! Made this today and everyone loved it. I did bake it for an additional ten minutes or so, until the filling was set. Super easy to make, with ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. A keeper!
Delicious! I added a 1/4 tsp coconut extract, also used 1/2 cup of cream I had left over mixed with 1 cup low fat milk. The crust I used called for 1/2 cup of sugar so I used unsweetened coconut in the pie filling. Still plenty sweet! I will definitely make this again, I am looking forward to trying it with coconut milk. The filling fit perfectly in a 9-1/2" foil pie pan (measured across the top from inside rim to inside rim)
We tried it warm, and it was good. I might have to upgrade my review tomorrow when it's cold! To Pennzer, the filling did not run over, and I did not use a deep dish pie pan. The bottom crust did get cooked, and the filling did not soak into it because it's so watery. I don't know why yours did, but mine didn't.
We really enjoyed this pie! It was delicious and easy to make. I used a 9 inch, deep dish, frozen, store bought crust and had room to spare for the filling. I did cut the sugar a bit, to 3/4 cup. Will definitely make again. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
This recipe is flawed. Where did all these 5-star ratings come from? Either you used a different recipe or you haven't really made it. Or maybe the recipe got changed before I made it. One and one-half cups milk is waaay too much liquid! This will run out of a 9" pie crust and all over your counter and all over your oven. And even if you don't use all the filling you have made, the filling is so thin and watery it will soak into the bottom crust and the crust won't get cooked. Also it won't taste good, because it is so dilute! How do I know? Because I made it last night. What a mess! After my folly I checked this recipe against my old standby, Lady Bird Johnson's coconut pie. Her recipe calls for 1/3 cup buttermilk, and that's the only liquid. She tops it after baked with whipped cream. Editors, please fix this recipe to spare others the disaster I had.
Made it!!! Love it!!! Used heavy cream instead of milk, and made a shortbread pie crust ..... My guests were totally blown away!!! Bless you Mary McGuire!!! It's amazing how something so easy to make can be sooo delicious!!! Have many requests to make it often ..... THANKS !!!
This is not like a pudding coconut pie with meringue. It's a lot more dense but absolutely delicious. Bet you can't eat just one slice! Very easy to whip up at the last minute but make sure to use a deep dish crust or a 10" pie pan. This makes a lot. Thank you Mary for sharing your recipe & making me a hero after dinner last night!!
