Impossible Coconut Pie

Leapin' Leprechauns...lucky for us!

Just in time for National Pi Day, St. Patrick's Day and nearly Spring, here's a luscious  Impossible Coconut Pie!
Impossible Coconut Pie /

Why impossible you ask?
Well, forget about using a rolling pin, this pie miraculously forms it's own crust while baking.  It has a creamy custard middle and the toasty coconut around the edges is delectable!  If you're into "green food," just add some food coloring for fun.

Impossible Coconut Pie 
  • 1 stick butter, melted, (plus more for greasing pie pans)
  • 1-3/4 cups sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup self-rising flour
  • 2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 cups milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and butter two 9-inch glass pie pans.  In a large bowl, whisk the melted butter with the sugar.  Add the eggs and beat until smooth.  Stir in the flour, coconut and milk.  Divide the mixture between the pie pans and bake in the lower third of the oven for about 1 hour, until the pies are firm to the touch and golden.  Transfer the pies to a rack and cool completely before serving. Makes 2-9" pies.

Note:  The pies can be made ahead and refrigerated overnight.  Return them to room temperature before serving with lots of love, a little whipped cream, a sprinkle of toasted-coconut, or a fresh fruit garnish.

Springing ahead, may your week be filled with lots of luck and love,


  1. Yum! I'm in the mood for this!

  2. Love coconut. My mother always made a similar pie and it was delicious!

    1. Mine made this's fairly light and so easy. Thanks Becki!

  3. They sound great! Love that they don't use Bisquick-enjoy:@)

  4. That looks so absolutely delicious! Very clever recipe!

    It was so fun to see you on Saturday. You are as beautiful and sweet as ever! Hope you got rested up.......if that's going to be possible for you two!

  5. This pie sounds magical and amazing!

  6. I like old fashioned pies, and this is nifty since it makes its own crust. Hope you had a fun Pi Day, and a great St Pattys' weekend~

  7. Oh my goodness. I'm going to rename this "Debbie-Can-Make-This Pie". It's the crust that gives me fits. I should be ashamed to admit that, but I'm a remedial crimper, and I've been known to burn a crust or two (hundred). I'm pinning this bad boy. And I'm making it ASAP.

  8. And did you know that you have my favorite post of yours EVER up in your header? It's those May Day cupcakes. I think you should do a rerun of those this spring for folks who might not have seen them. They are A+ cute.

  9. I love coconut pie . How delicious and easy this one sounds! Darn! My new grandson was born one day too early or he could have been able to celebrate a birthday and Pi Day :)

  10. Hi Renee...This is one of the easiest yet most impressive recipes I've ever seen. It looks delicious and if I had a piece in front of me right now it wouldn't be there long! Definitely pinning this one. You stopped by my blog a while ago. I'm sorry it took me so long to get here. I'm behind on everything. :o) Have a good week!

  11. Mmm love coconut pie! This sounds like an easy recipe, and looks soooo good!

  12. That pie looks fantastic - I love coconut.

  13. It looks so yummy!
    Thanks for sharing.
    Hope to see you on my blog:)

  14. I LOVE this recipe! I found it an old Junior League cookbook and make it every year for my MIL's birthday! It was fun to see it here! I'm visiting from Savvy Southern Style and would love for you to link up to my blog hop as well.

    Cheers - Jen
