Miss Betty's Coconut Pie

My husband won't eat coconut except in this pie! It is the best treat, particularly for the holidays for those who don't care for pumpkin.

The recipe is foolproof but I bumped it up to medium because it requires a sixth sense to get the done-ness correct. My trick is to open the oven when I think its about done and jiggle the rack to see how the pie's contents move. It is a custard so if you get it to be completely solid in the oven, it is too done. Not solid enough it is goop! Don't let that intimidate you though, this pie is great!
