This was very good, just not what I was expecting. I know it sounds strange, but this has a little too much coconut and not enough custard. The taste was good, but I found the texture too dry. Usually, lots of coconut is a good thing...I just think in this case, it was over-powering. Thanks for sharing the recipe...I will play with it a bit.
This was my first custard pie and I really like the way it came out-quite tasty. However I did have the same issue as Karen-great tasting custard-just not enough. Next time I may use a smaller pie shell-I used a 9 inch-or increase the amount of milk. Also I substituted regular milk for sweetened condensed milk and instead of vanilla I used a other spices mix -a cinnamon, nut meg and brown sugar mix. Over all a completely different pie I guess but still good.-If I try it again with more milk I will repost Thanks for the Recipe!!
