I had to cook this for over and hour to get it to firm up in a deep dish pan. By the time it was done the crust and coconut was burned. I tasted the filling and it seemed good I may try it one more time with a shallow pan. Read More

This recipe is just fantastic! We were desperate for a coconut custard pie for Thanksgiving and none of the stores had them. This recipe looked easy and made two pies so we decided to give it a try. I'm so glad we did! We'll definitely be using this recipe from now on instead of buying them. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe! Read More

I found that more time was needed in the cooking process. The bottom crust was a bit soggy. Read More

I made this last week this is the best tasting Coconut Custard pie ever! I did make a few adjustments though. You really need to make two pie's there is to much filling for one deep dish pie. I added some nutmeg and I dusted the top of the pie with some cinnamon/sugar spice mix. Read More

I JUST MADE THIS PIE AND IT SMELLS GREAT. I USED A GLASS PIE DISH AND THE BUTTER IS JUST BUBBLING ALL UNDER THE CRUST. THE CRUST SEEMS TO BE SOGGY. DID I DO SOMETHING WRONG? I ONLY USED ONE DEEP DISH PIE PLATE FOR ALL THE CUSTARD AND COOKED OVER AN HOUR. Read More
