Get Tropical with Coconut Pie

Coconut Pie is a custard-like pie with hints of macaroons, almond joys, and tropical islands. Not only does the pie taste delectable, but is beautiful to look at. The vision of the pie was so tempting that I could not wait for it to cool off to try it. Of course, don't forget to add whip cream to the top of the pie to make it extra delicious!
I found the recipe in the Better Home and Garden New Cook Book. For the pie crust, I used a simple crust. You can buy one at the store or try this recipe here at this link
Coconut Pie
  • 3 beaten eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 4 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/3 cup flaked coconut
  • 1 uncooked pie shell
Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine eggs, sugar, butter, lemon juice, and vanilla. Stir in coconut. Pour into unbaked pie shell. Bake for an hour or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean.
Hope you enjoy this recipe!
