Kathy's notes for this recipe:
Someone gave me this recipe more than 30 years ago and it is an all time favorite in our home.

This is one of the best coconut pies you will ever have and without a doubt the easiest to make.

Everything mixes in one bowl, pour into a pie pan and bake. The pie even makes it's own crust.

Make it Your Way...

Thanks for the hint Peggy, I will try that next time. Bisquick would be more convenient that buying self rising flour.

My kids and I make this all the time. Although this has become known as Melissa's Pie at our house. She insists she cant cook a thing, but this recipe is so easy , no one can mess it up. Remember when you take it out of the oven, it will be puffed up, then fall, that's OK.Its is really good cold!
