This is my grandma's recipe and my husband loves it so much that he named it, Best Ever Coconut Pie.


4 Eggs; Beaten
1/2 c Butter
1/2 c Flour
1 3/4 c Sugar
2 c Whole Milk
1 1/4 c Coconut
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Vanilla
1/4 tsp Baking Powder

Original recipe makes 12



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a large pie pan with canola oil.

In a bowl mix together the eggs and butter. Add in the flour, coconut, salt, vanilla, sugar, baking powder and milk. Pour the mixture into the pie pan being careful not to overfill. Place pie pan in oven and bake for approximately 40 minutes or until the center is set.

This pie creates it's own crust but you can vary the recipe by filling two 9" frozen pie shells with this filling and baking approximately 40 minutes or until set.

Note: I always make sure I have a liner under this pie when I bake it.

I'm sorry, I haven't logged on much lately but I do use the sweetened coconut. I apologize for the long overdue response.

Is the coconut supposed to be sweetened or unsweetened?

I made a half recipe and it tasted so great! I am a coconut lover and it turned out super yummy.

I'm sorry I can only give it 3 stars...All that butter?!! Why? My pie when just taken out of the oven was floating in butter, I must say once you get past the butter the taste is great. If I do try this recipe again I will use about a fourth of the butter.
