This easy coconut custard pie recipe is magic - it forms its own crust during baking!
Dietary Fiber: 1g
Clearly did something wrong. Needed a bigger pan for sure. The sides rose well above the edge of the pan, and of course, began to burn. The center fell. There was nothing custardy about it. Double checked the ingredients and the timing. Love coconut. Need assistance because this pie became a sweetened hockey puck.
Have made this many times--delicious. In the summer I substitute one cup of stewed, drained summer squash for one cup of the half and half. Since the coconut is sweetened already, I usually cut the sugar down to half a cup. It's always a big hit--winter or summer. I like it because, being basically crustless, it has fewer calories than a traditional coconut custard pie. Got the recipe from the Land O Lakes Simply Delicious cookbook. Thanks for such a good recipe!
Will this work with Fat Free Half and Half?
This pie was good, but it did not make its own crust. There was nothing on the bottom just the lemon.
Recipe was easy to prepare...and I was pleasantly surprised when I took it out of the oven...I used fresh strawberries on top.
Sooo easy! Will bake in deeper/larger pan next time. Family loved it.
It didn't brown on the bottom. Took longer to bake than stated time but knife inserted in center came out clean. Could have been my oven temp was incorrect. Plan to try again and will review again

We’re entering a new phase in our life as new parents – the dinnertime meltdown stage (or the “witching hour” as I like to call it). We rush home from daycare, singing “Wheels on the Bus” as many times as it takes to keep him entertained on the 10-minute car ride. It’s the same song and dance when we get home, while his daddy finishes up work and I’m hectically trying to empty the dishwasher, make dinner and keep our little guy from hiding the dog food between the couch cushions.
