How to Make Coconut Custard Pie


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degree F.

    Bake pie shell for 6 minutes. Cool slightly.

    Toast 1/2 cup coconut. Either in oven on a sheet pan, or I do mine in a skillet on the stove top. Stirring frequently so as not to burn, for about 5 minutes. Set aside.
  2. In a bowl, beat eggs. Add remaining ingredients, except coconut. Mix well. Stir in the 1 cup of coconut.
  3. Pour into pre cooked pie shell. Sprinkle toasted coconut on top.

    Bake for 10 minutes. I then cover crust with foil, so not to burn.

    Reduce oven to 350. Bake 25 - 30 minutes longer; or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
  4. Cool, and refrigerate leftovers.
