    I have looked for a good Coconut Custard Pie & now I found it. You will not be sorry when you make it. My Hubby is very fussy about his pies & he loves it. I have a girl friend who does not like coconut. I made it for her & she also loved it big time. This must be telling you something about this recipe. Enjoy E1.
    Outstanding pie...and it is even better with lard pastry crust.
    This recipe was horrible. It wasn't really creamy or custard like at all. I'm actually surprised so many people gave this a good rating. This is my s/o's favorite pie, and he didn't like it at all. I didn't like it either and we just decided to toss it. I would never make this recipe again.
    Firt time I have ever made a coconut custard pie - just gave my husband a slice - he says it's a keeper. The only changes I made after reading the reviews - had no self-rising flour - used cake flour. I did grate a nutmeg just two time on the grater, very little nutmeg. 30 min. in the oven and it was ready to go. As I said - this recipe is a keeper.
    leave out the nutmeg, add a pinch of salt andup the flour to 2 tbsp. it will be perfect.
    The Recipe Calls For Two Teaspoons Of Self Rising Flour... Shouldn't That Be Two Cups Of Self Rising Flour-???...
    I first made this for my fiance' a couple of years ago for Chirstmas. I did find that you should cook it about 5-10 minutes longer that it says (just keep an eye on the pie crust so it doesn't burn). Also, let it stand for a while and it will thicken nicely. It was my first attempt at making a pie from scratch and it turned out great. Next time, I may take the suggestion to use coconut milk (if I can find it here in tiny town Pennsylvania). Now, I did not try this, as I do not like coconut, but my fiance' loved it and asks for it several times a year so I guess that is a sign that it tastes great. The first time I made it, I put in nutmeg and he told me it tasted weird and to leave it out next time, which I did. I plan on making this in a couple of days for his birthday. He insists upon having it instead of cake!
    Great simple recipe... but here's a tweek that 's sure to please... omit the nutmeg and instead of milk use coconut milk in its place. Coconut milk is available in the can and is really inexpensive and available at most grocery stores or commissaries. Enjoy!
    This pie was great and was very easy to make. However, I would beware of the Nutmeg seasoning. I used a pinch too much of it and it was overwhelming. Overall though, great recipe.
