Good old fashioned comfort food! This pie was meant to be sweet, and it is. I sliced off thin pieces and enjoyed. After sitting overnight it gets better and is not as sweet. I like it because it doesn't need a crust, other than the thin one that the pie makes while cooking.
As others noted, it was too sweet and more of a custard, even with the unsweetened coconut that I used. However, quick, easy and a good family dessert or for a sweet tooth. Yes, adding nuts and cinnamon, etc. seemed to improve it.
This was amazingly good for such a simple recipe, although I can't say that mine really made a crust, more like a custard. I thought that it was bit too sweet, but maybe I added too much sugar. I think that it would be good with a little crumbled almond paste.
I love this recipe. I made it just the way it is written once, then the second time I added 1/4 c of dutch process cocoa to the dry ingredients, then substituted about 1/3 c of toasted slivered almonds for the coconut. YUMMY!! Very nice and gooey and chocolatey!
meh is the best way to describe this recipe. it was 'ok' but nothing i'd make again.
This is a delicious pie! Paula Deen made this same pie (without the coconut) on her television show and I tried it after seeing it there. It is very easy and very yummy!
Quick and easy to make and clean up after. Taste great!!
We modified this recipe for lower fat & sugar. It turned out great. We baked closer to the original first & thought it could stand reducing fat without much change of taste. We were right. Thank you for a "keeper".
Great recipe! DH really loved it. Will be making this one again.
My mom used to make this and I was looking for the recipe - turned out great. I don't think she used to add the coconut, but it was a nice addition. Also I didn't have buttermilk in the house and used one cup milk with 1 T. vinegar as a substitute. Turned out great.
