Coconut custard pie that is impossibly easy to make. Just throw all the ingredients in the blender and you’re good to go.
1 cup flaked coconut
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
6 tablespoons margarine or butter
3/4 cup white sugar
Place all ingredients into blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a greased and floured 10″ pie pan and bake at 350F for 45 minutes.
I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to post this recipe; it’s one of my favourites. It’s a very kid-friendly recipe because children can help pour all the ingredients into the blender and watch it blend. I used to like to help my mom make this when I was a kid, and I remember it seemed almost magical the way it forms a crust, then creamy custard, then a layer of coconut on top. The crust isn’t a pie crust in the traditional sense, but there is a thin golden outer layer that lifts out of the pie plate easily. We usually have some kind of dessert on Sundays, and I like to make this recipe on those Sundays when I’m short on time and energy. It’s also great that the ingredients are all typically found in my kitchen in case I haven’t planned a dessert ahead of time. The kids and Tony all seem to enjoy this pie a lot and so do I. They’d probably like a real pie even better, but I am sadly deficient in that area. I just can’t seem to make a decent pie crust! If you like this pie, be sure to check out this pumpkin version we made a while ago; it’s quite yummy too.
