French Coconut Pie

I’ve mentioned so many times before how nuts I am about coconuts even more so when a recipe is this easy. Although I made my pastry crust from scratch, it’s still easier than this:

..this is the coconut cream pie that I made last week; and while it was delicious, I was  disappointed with how my custard turned out, it didn’t firm up, I must have done something wrong plus it was a tad too sweet for me..BUT this French coconut pie from Paula Deen is not!

..and serve!  I told you it’s easy!  I♥ Paula Deen! 🙂

It just came to me while I’m making this post..I think this will be even better with a meringue frosting;  ohh,I can just imagine  how delicious it would be…yum!  Why didn’t I think of it before..next time, next time..  It’ll be an extra step but I think it’ll be worth the trouble 🙂

FRENCH COCONUT PIE

Ingredients:

4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, melted
2 eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 (3 1/2–ounce) can shredded sweetened coconut (about 1 cup)
1 cup milk
1 (9-inch) unbaked pie shell or make your own like I did:

CRUST:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
2/3 shortening
1/4 cup water

Directions:

In a bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Add water, a tablespoon at a time, until a ball of dough is formed. Roll out the dough to fit the pie plate. Transfer dough to pie plate and flute the edges. Set aside.

Make the pie:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine melted butter, eggs, flour, sugar, coconut, and milk. Pour into pie shell. Bake until firm, about 45 to 60 minutes.

Thanks for dropping by….have a nice day y’all! 😉
