Impossible Coconut Pie

Impossible Coconut Pie
Leapin’ Leprechauns…lucky for us!  Just in time for National Pi Day, St. Patrick’s Day and nearly Spring, here’s a luscious  Impossible Coconut Pie!
 Why impossible you ask?

Impossible Coconut Pie

Well, forget about using a rolling pin, this pie miraculously forms it’s own crust while baking.  It has a creamy custard middle and the toasty coconut around the edges is delectable!  If you’re into “green food,” just add some food coloring for fun.

Here’s all do for a quick fix and big a payoff.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees and butter two 9-inch glass pie pans. In a large bowl, whisk the melted butter with the sugar. Add the eggs and beat until smooth. Stir in the flour, coconut and milk.  Divide the mixture between the pie pans and bake in the lower third of the oven for about 1 hour, until the pies are firm to the touch and golden.  Transfer the pies to a rack and cool completely before serving.  I like to top mine with some whipped cream and a garnish.  Try any fresh berry, chocolate kiss, or long stemmed maraschino cherry.

    I like old fashioned pies, and this is nifty since it makes its own crust. Hope you had a fun Pi Day, and a great St Pattys’ weekend~

    Oh my goodness. I’m going to rename this “Debbie-Can-Make-This Pie”. It’s the crust that gives me fits. I should be ashamed to admit that, but I’m a remedial crimper, and I’ve been known to burn a crust or two (hundred). I’m pinning this bad boy. And I’m making it ASAP.

    And did you know that you have my favorite post of yours EVER up in your header? It’s those May Day cupcakes. I think you should do a rerun of those this spring for folks who might not have seen them. They are A+ cute.

    Hi Renee…This is one of the easiest yet most impressive recipes I’ve ever seen. It looks delicious and if I had a piece in front of me right now it wouldn’t be there long! Definitely pinning this one. You stopped by my blog a while ago. I’m sorry it took me so long to get here. I’m behind on everything. :o) Have a good week!

    I LOVE this recipe! I found it an old Junior League cookbook and make it every year for my MIL’s birthday! It was fun to see it here! I’m visiting from Savvy Southern Style and would love for you to link up to my blog hop as well. http://www.sassypantsstudio.blogspot.com

    Renee, I’ve always liked this pie. My own version is a lot less sweet, so probably most people would like yours better! 😀 The whipped cream is a must, and I like your idea of garnishing with a chocolate kiss.

    I have made a pie very similar to this before, except it used Bisquick and a whole lot less sugar and butter. It’s pretty cool that way the crust just makes itself.
