Baking can appear to be pretty tough. And I’ll admit that I’m not the best baker in the world. Good thing I don’t need to be in order to make some pretty fabulous desserts. And this coconut pie is so easy, I could do it when I was a teenager.
Dad loved coconut pie. For him, it was a reminder of childhood, at least of the good parts. I’m not normally too big on coconut, but when you put it in a pie, suddenly it’s great! The first time I remember mom making coconut pie, I darn near didn’t try it. But Dad encouraged me to try a bite of his pie, and I was hooked!
The great thing about this recipe is that you mix everything together, then bake it. No crust to make; no special equipment required. Just a few minutes blending things together. Then a half hour of making your house smell delicious, and then all that’s left is to wait until the pie cools enough to eat it.
Simple, right? So let’s go have some fun!
1/2 cup Bisquick®
3/4 cup sugar
2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 can (3 1/2 oz.) shredded coconut
In a large bowl, combine Bisquick® and sugar.
In another bowl, break eggs and beat them like they owe you money. Add milk, vanilla and melted butter and stir to combine.
Pour milk mixture into Bisquick® and sugar and whisk to blend thoroughly.
Fold coconut into batter.
Pour batter into buttered pie pan. Bake at 400° for 25 to 30 minutes, until custard sets and browns a bit on top.
Don’t ask me how it works, but as the batter bakes, a crust will form on the bottom, and the custard will form on top of it. It’s magic. Stop worrying and go with it, OK?
Dress it up a bit by serving with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of shredded coconut.
Have fun. Impress your friends. And…
Play with your food!
