Simple French Coconut Pie

Kathy Sterling


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.
