Recently we had to take our walk at the mall--it was raining and we couldn't walk outside--my husband asked me if I wanted to buy some snacks after our walk. I told him we didn't need to buy snacks, that I would make us a treat when we returned home.
After looking through my recipe file, I came across a very easy recipe for Impossible Coconut Pie. I've made this pie for many years. If you have never made an impossible pie, it is one that the filling makes its' own crust. It's more of a cakey crust, but delicious still. Hey, sometimes I just want easy!
Impossible Coconut Pie
2 cups milk
1 cup coconut
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup flour
6 tablespoons butter-melted
3/4 cup sugar
Place all ingredients in the bowl of your mixer. Mix until all ingredients are well blended. Pour your mixture into a 10 inch pie plate that has been sprayed with cooking spray or greased with butter. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes. It will puff up like a German pancake, but don't worry. As it cools it will look like a normal pie. Let cool. Serve at room temperature or place in refrigerator and allow to chill completely. I personally like it chilled.
When I was ready to serve the pie, our grandson informed me he had never had a pie like this before. He tried it and declined his serving---He said he didn't like the texture of the coconut. My husband and I both like coconut and enjoyed it very much. I think you would like it also---if you like coconut and don't have a texture issue!
