But nothing compares to the simplicity and uniqueness of a homemade, flaky, tender, buttery pie crust.

Pear and Apple Strudel

Pear and Apple Strudel

I feel like the pear fruit is a highly under rated fruit and why I decided to feature it in my recipe for Pear and Apple Strudel

Now let me preface this entire tutorial by saying, I know my recipe for making strudel is not a true Austrian Strudel Dough which gets stretched and pulled across the entire table so thin that you can read a newspaper through it!

Coconut Custard Pie Recipe

Coconut Custard Pie

Coconut Custard Pie

The Coconut Custard Pie Recipe is one of those pies that is so unbelievably delicious ~ but rarely made!

Why is that!??

I feel like it mostly makes an appearance around Thanksgiving or Christmas time, but not so much before, after or in between!

I am here to change that and make the coconut custard pie a staple all year round!

With this new recipe twist on a traditional classic egg custard pie, the addition of coconut milk and of course flakes of sweetened coconut makes it out of this world!

For those who want to take it a step further and turn this baby into a Coconut Cream Pie! By all means, pile on that whipped cream and you have yet another fabulous twist!

(I feel like I almost did that when I dropped that hefty portion of whipped cream onto my slice for the photo! LOL  Who ever said less was more was an idiot!)

  • Coconut Milk ½ cup (120ml)

  3. Pour into the prebaked pie shell and then bake at 325° (on a pizza stone if desired) for 50 minutes or until it is set. It will be similar to baking a cheesecake, where the center will be slightly jiggly but not liquidy.

Notes
Coconut custard pie can be served warm or cold- just be sure to allow it to cool completely before cutting.

It will keep fresh for up to 1 week in the refrigerator at all times
