Coconut Custard Pie

I love comfort food....period.   And for me, comfort food can be an appetizer, entrée and a comfort dessert.   The comfort dessert journey began as a child....I remember all the things that family members made including banana pudding, chocolate cake and peanut butter cookies.  

A number of years back, I remember watching Mama Dip on TV.  Mama is the Queen of Comfort Food.  She has been operating her restaurant in Chapel Hill, NC for many years and her life story is quite interesting.  

This is her Coconut Custard Pie....and it is a slice of heaven with each bite.

Coconut Custard Pie

Pies

3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons self-rising flour
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 stick butter; melted
3  eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup milk
1 cup fresh or frozen grated coconut
9-inch pie shell; unbaked


Preheat oven to 375F.

In a bowl, blend together the sugar, flour and nutmeg. Add the butter, eggs, vanilla and milk. Mix well. Stir in the coconut.

Pour into the pie shell and bake for 45 minutes or until firm.  My bake time was longer, so check to be sure there is NO jiggle in the middle.

Ready for the Oven


I use my upside down cooling racks to place pie
in oven.   Makes it so much easier to remove when hot
and I don't have to worry about damaging the fragile crust
with a pot holder.
