This Crustless Coconut Pie is a simple custard pie filled to the brim with sweet bites of coconut. Best of all, it’s so easy to make, the kids can stir it together in about 5 minutes.
When I saw the recipe name, “Impossible To Ruin Coconut Pie” in the very old Amish cookbook I picked up a few weeks ago, I knew I had to try it for myself.
I’m happy to tell you that this coconut pie really is crazy easy and truly is impossible to ruin.
This coconut pie makes its own crust while baking. Really, it’s that easy. Stir the ingredients together, pour the mixture into a pie pan and slide it into the oven.
One hour later, you’ll be holding this coconut lover’s favorite pie.
Old cookbook recipes are always fun to play with in the kitchen. I’ve tweaked this one a bit to suit my coconut loving tastebuds even more.
I’ve made this pie a few times now, and I wanted the chewy, crunchy bites of coconut to outweigh the custard. So, I’ve bumped up the amount of coconut in this recipe significantly and it’s perfect now.
I’ve served this coconut pie warm, at room temperature, and cold from the refrigerator. There isn’t a wrong way to enjoy it. I typically prefer a custard pie when it is chilly from the refrigerator, but this one works just as well when served warm.
▢½ cup all-purpose flour

Combine the flour, sugar, and salt in a mixing bowl. Whisk to combine. Add the milk slowly and whisk smooth. Add the eggs and vanilla and whisk again to combine. Stir in the coconut.
Pour into prepared pie plate. Bake for 55-60 minutes, until golden brown and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
