This is my favorite coconut pie to make. I have even substituted Splenda for baking for the sugar in it and it turned out great.

I love this recipe..couldn't be easier. My husband devoured it. In fact, he suggested that next time I make it, that I add crushed pinneaple. Should go good with the coconut. Thanks for the recipe. It's a keeper!

Brought back memories of something my Nanna used to cook when I was little (a very long time ago).Incredibly easy, nice custard centre, yum. It is winter here, and it was a perfect way to finish dinner.

I made 3 of these for Easter. I started out making just one, and my hubby ate it all, just after proclaiming, "I don't like coconut" The next two I experimented made one with lemon and one without coconut, but added pecans. All 3 were very good but the orginal was great. P.S. I used coconut milk instead of regular milk.

I hadn't thought of this pie in years. My mother made this often when I was growing up. I did cut the margerine in half, but otherwise made it as posted. Thanks for the memory!

To say this is simple to put together is an understatement. Very easy. I used 3/4 of the serving size as I had a 9" pie pan. It overloaded it. (good thing I had foil underneath it during baking). I would suggest if using pie pans, as stated, it would make 2 easily. The pie did sink down right after removing it from the oven but it was still very good. A bit of moisture on the bottom of the pie dish also. Overall, yea it is very good. ~Bird

This is what my Mom made when I was a child! I did not have her recipe. She had passed and thought I would never see it again. Thank you for sharing it! ~ Wendy

We really enjoyed this pie, but were not crazy about the "crust" it was sort of rubbery. I also sprinkled about 3/4 cup of coconut on the top to brown in the oven. Apart from the crust the pie is very good.

This recipe was sure fun to make. I needed 2 9-inches pie dishes to contain all the recipe. So I assume my pie dishes were much shallower than yours. It did well separate but ended up with less custard in the middle. DH didn't like much, to eggy for his taste. I liked it, and baby loved it very much. It's a sugary way to get some eggs in him :)
