Grandma’s Coconut Cream Pie — 32 Comments

  1. I’ve made a few coconut cream pies in my day but I have to say that this one is the best! My family loved it! It’s a keeper for sure! Thanks for sharing.?

  2. I JUST MADE THIS AND TASTED IT OMG IT WAS GREAT AND IT LOOKS SO PRETTY WOTH THE CREAM AND COCONUT ON IT. I MADE IT FOR A FRIEND THAT LOVES COCONUT CREAM PIE. LAST YEAR I MADE ONE AND IT WAS JASTY. THANK U GRANDMA FOR THIS GREAT RECIPE

  3. Question: Can you use coconut milk or cream instead of regular milk?
    I personally do not like the actual coconut, love the flavor though. However, I want to make one for someone else who loves coconut cream pie.

    • Hi Dea, Honestly I don’t know….so here’s my guess. Coconut milk and cream are thicker then regular milk becasue of that I would recommend using regular milk to make your custard.

  4. I made this for Thanksgiving, it’s great! I do think the sugar could be cut back some. Planning to make again soon. this is by far the best coconut cream pie I have ever made.

    • Hi Luann, You’re right typically you would use egg yolks in a custard type pie…except for this recipe. Using 3 whole eggs is correct. Have a wonderful holiday! ?

  5. It’s a messy winter’s day in Maine. My grand daughter (who is 21) and I were discussing coconut cream pie. I found this recipe yesterday and decided to make it. I have never made a good coconut cream pie until today! LOVE THIS PIE!

    It is a deep dish kind of pie. Nice and thick just the way we like it. I will make this often. Thank you and your Grandma as my grand daughter thanked me today.

    • Hi Linda, In section of pie filling ingredients 2 cups is mentioned. All that goes into the filling. Under the section “topping” is listed toasted coconut. The amount you add to the top of the pie is up to you. 1 cup should be plenty.♥

  6. How long does it take to set in fridge ? It thickened on stove but I assume it has to get much thicker in fridge

  7. I just finished baking this great pie.. one of de best i ever taste.. my husbandlove it.. and today is his birthday.. and found this great recipe. Thank you for share.

    • Hi Cheryl, Sure, you can use a store bought crust but after going to all the trouble of making a homemade custard, I would recommend making your own crust. You can make it ahead of time and freeze it in the pan. With that being said a store bought crust will work the same as homemade just not taste the same.♥

  8. Omg this is the best recipe ever, I love it.I have made it twice by request so easy and delicious, better than The House of Pies really,will be my go too from now on. Thanks Rusty
