This recipe is extremely easy. Even though my mama and Nanny bake delicious pies left and right, this is the first pie I’ve ever made, and it tastes great (but then again I may be biased!)
2 cups milk
2 1/2 cups flaked coconut
4 eggs beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup all-purpose flour or bisquick
3/4 cup white sugar (if you use sweetened coconut flakes, you may want to use only about 1/2 cup sugar. Or, if you love sweet things, then go ahead and use 3/4 cup!)
2 tablespoons margarine or butter softened
1) Preheat oven to 350°
2) Combine all ingredients, mix well, and pour into 9 inch buttered pie pan.
3) Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until golden brown and knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
Over the course of baking, the pie layers itself into layers: a thin crust, custard and coconut topping.
