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!
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,
