Coconut Custard Pie - Best EVER

Yes, you read that title right.  Best EVER.  And, I do mean ever!  This coconut pie has stood the test of time, & has been passed down 2 generations.  

It originally came from my great grandmother, and calls for just a handful of basic items.  The simple ingredients come together to make a sensual creamy coconut experience. 

You may already have everything you need in the house to make this one.  If you do, what are you waiting for?!  

This recipe yields 2 pies, which is certainly a good thing - because that first pie will be gone in record breaking time.

Coconut Custard Pie


  • 5 eggs
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 14oz coconut
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 (9 inch) unbaked pie crusts


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  

In a large bowl, beat eggs & sugar until smooth.  Mix in buttermilk & melted butter.  Stir in coconut & vanilla.  Divide the batter equally between both pie crusts.

Bake for 15 minutes, then cover the crust with a strip of tin foil or a pie crust shield to prevent the crust burning.  Bake for an additional 30-35 minutes (45-50 minutes total bake time).
