A good basic coconut pie recipe...the buttermilk gives it a rich flavor, I think. I made 6 of these in 1 week- 5 were for a church dinner. I used the "Bakers secret pie crust" on this same site.



Wonderful custard flavor! This is one of the most delicious coconut pies I have ever tasted. Its so amazing to me that the coconut and pecans float to the top, while the custard part stays on the bottome. I was afraid it would all blend together! Thanks Shirley.



"WOW. Did I really make this myself?? Because it tastes like something from a 5-star restaurant"--that is what I thought every time I took a bite. SO EASY yet SO SO SO yummy and unique. I used home-made pie crust and half of the butter and can't imagine it any better. Did I mention this pie is amazing?
