My husband LOVES coconut. Coconut water. Coconut milk. Coconut juice. Coconut everything. That's why when I saw this recipe for Coconut Pie, I knew I had to make it for him.
How do I feel about coconut? Eh... I could take it or leave it- but even I thought this pie was pretty good... as in, I ate way more of it than I should have. Maybe because it kind of tastes more like a coconut cake than coconut pie. Either way- it's a good go to recipe with ingredients you probably already have in your house (a huge plus for me). I got it out of last months' Food & Wine Magazine. The recipe is actually from Jennifer Nettle's (of the band Sugarland) great- grandmother.
- 1 stick unsalted butter, melted, plus more for greasing
- 1 3/4 cups sugar
- 4 large eggs
- 1/2 cup self- rising flour
- 2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
- 2 cups milk (We're lactose sensitive folks over here so I used fat free/ lactose free milk and it still tasted fine)
