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?

Thanks for checking, Tina. When baking you should use Traditional Half & Half instead of Fat Free Half & Half. Fat is an important ingredient in baking recipes and often you will not get the results that you would when using the full fat product.

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.
