Great Grandma’s Coconut Custard Pie – Best EVER!

Great Grandma's Coconut Custard Pie {Best Ever}

Yes, you read that title right.  Best EVER.  And, I do mean ever!  This coconut pie has stood the test of time, & has been passed down 2 generations.

It originally came from my great grandmother, and calls for just a handful of basic items.  The simple ingredients come together to make a sensual creamy coconut experience.

Coconut Custard Pie – Best EVER

Rating: 51

Yield: 2 pies

Ingredients

  • 5 eggs
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 14oz coconut
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 (9 inch) unbaked pie crusts (store bought or homemade)

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, beat eggs & sugar until smooth. Mix in buttermilk & melted butter. Stir in coconut & vanilla. Divide the batter equally between both pie crusts.

Bake for 15 minutes, then cover the crust with a strip of tin foil or a pie crust shield to prevent the crust burning. Bake for an additional 30-35 minutes (45-50 minutes total bake time).

    Oh wow, words cannot describe how much I want to try this pie!

    Any kind of custard or creme pie are things you won’t find in England. I don’t know why, we just seem to be a nation of unadventurous sweet pie makers lol!

    I shall definitely be making this though, thank you for sharing the recipe! :)

    I’m also taking part in the Hearth & Soul hop and that’s how I found your blog.

    This looks quite exceptional, like it beats the apron off of a coconut cream pie. I’ll be making it this weekend! Thanks.

    What kind of coconut do you use? Is that shredded and sweetened? This looks awesome.
