Thanks for sharing your grandma's pie recipe 2rosebud. We really enjoyed this quick and easy to make recipe. I did get two pies from this thought, instead of just one...It had a nice custard and was not too sweet. A very nice comfort food.

I always hate to write anything but glowing reviews...but personally found this pie a bit too "eggy" tasting for my own tastes. The rest of the balance in the pie is good and it went together and cooked beautifully but I guess I like a lighter custard type taste rather than richer egg type. Thanks for posting!

This was a very easy, great tasting pie. This was the first time I had ever made a custard pie!I didn't know how easy it could be. I loved the combination of the nutmeg and coconut. Next time I make this, I plan to add some toasted coconut on the top as well. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
