Favorite Seasonal Dish: Coconut Pie

RomanceWeeklyFavorite Seasonal Dish is the topic of this week’s Romance Writers Weekly Blog. Ahead of me on the tour, A.S. Fenichel shared her favorite dish.

I’m no artist of cuisine by any means. My mother was an awesome southern cook, but I inherited my dad’s mechanical nature.

Today, I’m sharing the coconut pie my husband bakes during the holidays and on other special occasions. He’s the chef in the family and this recipe was handed down from his mother. It tastes delicious and makes the house smell heavenly. It’s not the cream pie variety but is always a hit at gatherings. Plus it makes two pies, so you can keep one and share the other. Happy Thanksgiving!

Coconut Pie

2  9″ pie crusts (regular or graham)

2 cups of sugar

2 cups of coconut

1 tsp of vanilla

2 cups whole milk

2 eggs beaten

2 tbsp cornstarch

Beat eggs well then add sugar and cornstarch. Add rest of ingredients and mix well. Pour mixture in to crusts and bake at 300 for an hour until top is brown and toothpick comes out clean.
