Ingredients

  • Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut, chopped
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature, beaten
  • 2-1/2 cups 2% milk
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Toasted sweetened shredded coconut, optional

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 450°. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. deep-dish pie plate. Trim and flute edge. Line unpricked crust with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake 10 minutes. Remove foil; bake 5 minutes longer. Sprinkle coconut over crust; set aside. Reduce oven setting to 350°.
  • In a large bowl, combine the eggs, milk, sugar, flour, vanilla and salt. Pour over coconut; sprinkle with nutmeg.
