Well, the living nightmare that is my home office refuses to clean itself completely. So , I am left with all the best intentions but no pie to contribute to the Pi Day competition.
I had intended to bake PharmGirl’s great-grandmother’s old Southern traditional coconut pie. Alas, it was not to be.
From PharmGirl’s Facebook page today:
This is my husband’s favorite — a recipe passed down from my great grandmother.
1 1/2 cups shredded coconut
1 cup milk
1/2 stick butter
1 t. vanilla
3/4 cups sugar (decrease to 1/2 cup if using sweetened shredded coconut)
1 unbaked pie crust
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Cream butter and sugar in mixer. Add eggs and milk, then coconut and vanilla.
Pour into unbaked pie shell (I use 9″ glass dish with a Pillsbury crust) and bake at 325 for 45 minutes. Pie should be brown on top and firm throughout when done.
