" Lemon Coconut Custard" Pie

Recipe by luvinlif2k

Using zucchini was always a challenge at hom in PA Dutch country. This delightful dessert pie has a tropical flair! Don't let the ingredient list scare you away. I have served this to people who don't like squash and they never know if you don't tell them. If using zucchini squash, peel the green first for the best disguise.
