  1. This is very rich and sooo good -- and so easy! My father-in-law is visiting & loves coconut pie. During his last visit, I tried making a coconut cream pie. It was one of those recipes that required stirring a concoction over the stove. I stirred for what seemed like an hour and the stuff never did thicken (ARGH)! This was easy to put together & came out perfectly. The coconut mixed in the filling rises to the top during baking and makes a thin, sweet, slightly crisp top. YUMMMMM!
  2. I love coconut pie, Debster and this recipe is a winner! I prepared this recipe as directed, and used Mean Chef's recipe for Classic Pie Crust. The combination is perfect! I would not change a thing. Thanks for sharing!
  3. Delicious! It was so good! I actually changed the recipe just slightly because I don't like super sweet pies. I followed everything in the directions, except I used a little over 3/4 c sugar and probably a little under 1/4 c flour, and 2 tsp of vanilla. Okay, sorry my ability to follow directions to a T has gone by the way side for some reason. But either way; if you like a less sweet pie, this was great. I got tons of compliments at the party, no one left a crumble on the plate. So thank you Debster!!
  4. I made this pie for my BH today. I don't like coconut cream pie as a rule. But the smell was awesome as it was baking and I tried a piece of it. I have to say I think you may have converted me. This pie was great. I made the pie exactly as posted but was not sure how much 3 1/2 oz. of coconut was, so I used 3/4 of a cup. That seemed to be perfect. Thanks for the great recipe. Rita
  5. I have made my coconut pie for years, and it always gets noticed.....I do think that this is MUCH better than mine, I will be making this many times. Thank you for the great recipe. I did not change a thing! It does not even need whipped cream
