Easy Coconut Pie Recipe

Easy Coconut Pie Recipe

This pie is an old-fashioned dessert. I sometimes top warm slices with a sprinkling of cinnamon or nutmeg. Best of all, it's easy to assemble when dinner-time is fast approaching.—Virgina M Krites, Cridersville, Ohio

"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."

"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."

"this is one of my favorite recipes ever. So easy and so delicious. I make it every Christmas and Easter I do not make mine with the blender. I use my Kitchen aid mixer. It is basically an old fashioned coconut custard pie if you do it this way. Yum."

"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."
