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!

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!

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".

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.
