This was a successful adaptation of a few recipes I found online, because my Dad had requested this pie for his birthday. The coconut milk accentuates the flavor and creamy texture of the pie, but the topping is what really makes it shine. It was a huge hit (even my anti-pie sister thought it was delicious), and I can't wait to make it again!

How to Make Coconut Custard Pie

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix all ingredients except for the pie shells and topping in blender.
  • 2Pour mixture into pie shells and bake for 40-50 mins or until inserted knife comes out clean. I put the pie tins on a cookie sheet to more easily slide them in and out of the oven. (I also recommend covering the pies with foil towards the end, especially if they need extra oven time, to prevent the crust from overbrowning.) Allow pie to cool completely.
  • 3Mix topping ingredients, and before serving, spread topping over pies and broil, about 4 inches from heat, for 2-4 minutes, rotating pies once if necessary. Superb!
