Sweet Melissa Sundays: Coconut Custard Pie

May 30, 2010 — 11 Comments

I love discovering new recipes that are destined to become family favorites! Melissa Murphy’s Coconut Custard Pie is just such a recipe. Before reading the recipe, I was afraid it would be really complicated and time consuming. “Custard” is one of those culinary words that just makes you groan, as in, ” Oh no, I’m going to have to make custard.” But this pie ended up being the exact opposite of complicated and time consuming! Yes, making the crust takes a little time (and sometimes has sketchy results), but all the filling requires is that you throw a few ingredients in a blender and voila! Pie! Don’t think Banana Cream Pie or Chocolate Cream Pie, think Pumpkin Pie or Pecan Pie instead. You prebake the crust, sprinkle some coconut on top, pour in the filling, and bake. That’s it! The custard turned out delicious, sweet, and creamy, and tasted amazing slightly warm and topped with whipped cream. I could easily see this pie added to our Thanksgiving dessert table for years to come!

Thanks to Ruby of I Dream of Baking for choosing this week’s recipe for Coconut Custard Pie. You can find it on her blog HERE.
