Japanese Fruit Pie

READY IN: 50mins
Top Review by Browniebaker

This pie is utterly scrumptious! It's basically a chess pie chockful of good things, very rich and toothsome. A lot like a pecan pie. This same recipe has been in my family for years, and we make this pie every holiday. I grew up in the South, where this pie is an old classic and is called "Japanese" simply because in the old days the coconut was considered rather exotic (in the same vein as what Southerners called "Japanese fruitcakes," which contained tropical fruits). If you haven't tried this pie, please do! I bet you'll find a new family favorite!
