I’m a little sentimental about this pie…It’s one of the first things I ever made for my husband. 🙂 The first time I made it he told me it was very similar to a Vietnamese dessert that he grew up eating. Of course I was proud of myself for making something that he enjoyed so much. Since then I’ve made lots of meals that he loves…in fact, he seems to love most of the things I make (even some of the things that I thought bombed, lol). But this one is still special to me because it was one of the first things.
It is incredibly simple!
You will need:
4 beaten eggs
1 3/4 cups sugar
2 cups milk
3/4 stick margarine, melted (I use Best Life because it is not hydrogenated)
3/4 cup flour
1 Tablespoon vanilla
2 cups coconut
Simply mix everything in the bowl together…it will be lumpy.
Pour into 2 lightly greased pie pans and bake at 350 degrees for about 30-40 min.
Now relax with a cup of coffee, some pie and a good book! 🙂
It looks divine!
Thanks Kolein! 🙂
I just love coconut and I can’t wait to try this. It looks so easy. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks! I hope you enjoy it! 🙂
This reminds me of a dessert we get out at only ONE place. They actually bake the top of it for a few to get the coconut crispy. So good Michelle!
A few seconds under the broiler would give it the crispness on top and give it that added toasted coconut flavor…thanks for the idea! 🙂
Thanks for joining in Michelle!
would substituting butter affect the results?
You can use butter with no problem. I used to make it with butter all the time and never noticed any difference…I only switched to Best Life because it cost less and was a frugal, yet healthy replacement. I didn’t think to mention that in my post…thank you for bringing it up. 🙂
Ohhhh, I have everything to make this! You can be sure I will have some for my weekend guests! Following you now!!
I hope that you and your guests enjoy it! Thanks for the follow! 🙂
