Quick Coconut Cream Pie
Total TimePrep: 15 min. + chilling
Loved it for a hot June day. One tweak - instead of graham cracker crust or pie crust, I crushed one of those $1 packages of coconut cookies and added a couple of tbsp of margarine. Wow.
I've died and gone to coconut heaven! Thanks so much for this recipe! I made one from scratch and the filling was too lumpy. This recipe is so perfect and you don't have to bake anything! It taste even better than frozen coconut cream pies!
Talk about an easy and delicious dessert! Made exactly as directed. So simple to put together. Made it for my husband's birthday ~ he loves anything coconut ~ and it got rave reviews from him and everyone else. Super simple and definitely a keeper!
This pie is excellent. The only change I made was to use sugar free ingredients. You could not tell. Super easy to prepare and absolutely delicious. A definite 5 stars! Volunteer Field Editor
Addendum to my review below, you could also use the coconut cream pudding instead of vanilla, although the vanilla was wonderful!
I had an extra pre-baked pie shell after making a lemon meringue pie and was looking for something to fill the extra one with. Came across this recipe and gave it a try. I took it to work to have with our coffee break and the rave reviews were amazing for such a simple recipe. Several people told me it looked like a picture out of a magazine and I didn't let on how simple it was to make! I did make a couple adjustments, however: I couldn't find the 5.1 oz pudding mix so used 2 boxes of the 3.9 oz. Then I simply increased my milk to 1 3/4 cups. I also doubled the toasted coconut so there was more throughout the filling and a generous amount to garnish the top of the finished pie. This simple recipe is definitely a keeper and impressed everyone in my office!
I love my traditional coconut cream pie recipe that involves cooking the custard, but this is a great time-saver, super fast and very yummy. I use sugar free pudding and a lowfat graham cracker crust to trim some of the calories and you really can't taste the difference.
I have made this pie several times and my whole family loves it.
WONDERFUL!!This recipe is so easy and fast to make. This pie is a family favorite.The first time I made this pie I didn't get a piece because it was gone!!! Now, I make sure I get my piece reserved before I serve it to the family.
