This Coconut Pie is just like grandma used to make. It has simple ingredients that I bet you have right now in your pantry! I used a frozen pie shell to save time, but feel free to make your own crust if you’re feeling up to it.
Each bite is a little bit of heaven. It has a sweet coconut custard inside that melts in your mouth. My friend and I made it together and she said it tasted even better than Coconut Cream Pie! I agree. I love vintage recipes.
Pair with some whipped cream and you have a perfect dessert to serve to your family after a delicious meal. I may have eaten a piece for breakfast. Don’t judge.
