This pie is "delish"! I made it for the family as one of my pies for Thanksgiving and it was THE favorite! The only change I made was to bake it for 5 minutes @ 350 after putting the meringue on the custard to brown the meringue slightly! Will definitely make it again SOON!
This is the best coconut pie filling ever. I made it for a friend's housewarming, and it disappeared in a few minutes, with everyone asking, "Hey, where'd the pie go?" I used Kittencal's butter pie crust (#66929), which was flaky and delicious, and an excellent complement to the rich, creamy filling. If you're cooking on an electric stove, though, I'd forget about trying to cook this over low heat. After 25 minutes, it was still runny. I cranked the heat up to medium and cooked it until it started to bubble. I used whipped cream instead of meringue -- next time I'll try the meringue.
This pie was so tasty! Creamy and decadent. I used whipped cream and toasted coconut to top it off instead of a meringue. I have made this many times now. Great pie & really easy to make!
I made this today and it is excellent. Only change was to substitute non-fat half & half for the milk because all I had on hand was skim milk. I did put lots of coconut on top of the meringue before baking, The pie is rich and creamy and definitely will use this recipe again. Hubby loved the surprise!!
This was fantastic! I only used 2 egg yolks by accident and it was still great. I toasted a couple tbsp's of coconut to garnish the top of the merange. It looked great!
I made this for Thanksgiving. I was told that my friends husband loved Coconut cream pie. So I made it for him. I have made these pies before. They are really easy to make, and this was no exception. It turned out wonderfully and we all enjoyed it very much. For the crust I used Graham Cracker-Coconut Pie Crust only I used Chocolate Graham Crackers.
The rave reviews are justified! For those who had problems with it setting, be sure to follow the directions carefully. Thickening the filling slowly over low heat and then letting it cool as directed brought me great results. Also, I let the milk and eggs sit out a bit before I started preparation. The flavor is yummy!
This was delicious. I used fresh, minced coconut rather than shredded but it still turned out nicely. The only thing was that my filling didn't fully set up. I will be making this again soon. Used my own merangue recipe, 'tropical merangue'
My family really enjoyed this pie recipe. I followed the recipe exactly and it came out perfect. I made a meringue with the leftover egg whites. The meringue recipe I used is #20159.
