Makes-Its-Own-Crust Coconut Pie Recipes

Main Story:
GRIT Recipe Box: September/October 2010

Wilda Harris, Paragould, Arkansas, would like a coconut pie recipe that makes its own crust. The ingredients are simply mixed and placed in the pan.

With names like Impossible Coconut Pie, Makes-Its-Own-Crust Coconut Pie and Amazing Coconut Pie, hundreds of recipes arrived for Wilda.

Ruth Lanterman, Great Bend, Kansas, sends a version that was originally published in our sister publication, Capper’s, at least 30 years ago. 

Makes-Its-Own-Crust Coconut Pie

4  eggs
1 3?4 cups sugar
1?2 cup flour
1?4 cup margarine, melted
2 cups milk
1 1?2 cups shredded coconut
1 teaspoon vanilla 

Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 10-inch pie pan; set aside.

Combine ingredients in order given; mix well. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 45 minutes, or until golden brown.

Middle of pie will appear rather soft. Properly done, the pie will have a delicate crust over the top, sides and bottom. It will be solid enough to cut after it has cooled. The center will be a perfect cream pie.
