Today was one of those days. Ugh. I don't know what came over me, but I just felt so blah. No good reason, just blah. I don't know about you, but enjoying something delicious always seems to help- if even just a tiny bit. I had picked up a bag of lovely sweetened coconut at the grocery store the last time I was there, and it was calling my name. On the back of the bag there is this recipe for an Amazing Coconut Pie. It is incredibly simple, just a handful of ingredients thrown into a blender, topped with coconut and placed in the oven. A blender?! Who would've thought! I don't know about you but I've never used a blender to make a pie before. I was sold. Not only was it crazy easy- it was crazy delicious too!
Here is this beauty after sprinkling the coconut on top, just before placing in the oven.
This pie is so lovely. It is sweet- but not too sweet, with the perfect flavors of custard and coconut. The cool thing is that the all-purpose baking mix (better known as Bisquick) in the dish helps the pie create its own crust.
Amazing Coconut Pie2 cups milk
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose baking mix
1/4 cup (half a stick) butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/3 cups Baker's Angel Flake Coconut (sweetened)
Place milk, sugar, baking mix, eggs, butter and vanilla in blender; cover. Blend on LOW speed for 3 minutes. pour into a greased 9-inch pie plate. Sprinkle with coconut.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until center of pie is set and top is golden brown. (It took me closer to 50-55 minutes). Serve warm or cool on a wire rack. Store leftover pie in refrigerator.
