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.

  • 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.

  • Crystal my sweets. If you say this is the best coconut custard pie EVER then I certainly have to share it on my hearth and soul hop highlights this week because I adore coconut custard and I also love traditional family heirloom recipes! Thanks SO much for sharing it with us on the hearth and soul hop! All the best, alex

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

  • Just stopping by from HearthNSoul your pie looks devine. I wanted to invite you to my Iron Chef Challenge which starts tomorrow and the themed ingredient is canned tomatoes. Link up a recipe and you’ll have a chance to win a prize. Hope you can join in the fun!!!

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

    I love coconut cream pie, but the one I make has fresh coconut, lots of whipped cream and toasted coconut on top yummy! Never a piece left!

    Thanks so much for this recipe. I have been trying in vain to find a recipe that tastes like the coconut custard sold by a local farm. Not only does it taste like it, it tasted better. I confess I threw in a tablespoon of cream of coconut, simply because I always like more coconut. But the texture of this pie is the best part. Of course, custards have eggs, but some taste almost nauseatingly “eggy.” Not this one. Creamy and sweet. Searching no further. 🙂
