6 Impossibly Easy Coconut Custard Pie

Monday, December 13, 2010

My mother-in-law is really the baker in the family, and we spent the whole day on Saturday baking - white bread, loaves of zucchini bread and this wonderful concoction, a coconut custard pie which is made in the blender and makes its own crust!  That's right, no separate pie crust needed.  She had the recipe handwritten on a card, and I believe it originated on the back of a Bisquick box.  As you can see, it's been well-used.

You'll need:

2 cups milk
4 eggs
3/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup Bisquick baking mix
1/4 cup softened butter
1.5 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup shredded sweetened coconut
dash nutmeg (opt)

Preheat oven to 350F, and grease a 9 inch pie plate.  Mix together all ingredients in a blender except coconut and blend for 3 minutes.  Pour into the pie plate and let stand for 5 minutes.

After 5 minutes has elapsed, sprinkle the coconut on top.

Place the pie plate carefully into the hot oven and bake for 40-45 minutes.  The Bisquick will actually sink to the bottom of the pie plate and distribute evenly to make the crust.  It's done when a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.  Let it stand for about 10 minutes before slicing....

...but we couldn't wait! The piece below looks a little flat, but it was delicious!

Light, silky and fluffy, and best of all, easily whipped together in just minutes, the only torture being waiting for it to bake.
