    A while back I posted a recipe request for Apricot pie and while the one listed was fantastic it still wasn’t quite what I remembered. THIS IS IT! I remember the ingredients minus the nutmeg and almond! The difference is my grandma used to put a little stewed apricots in the filling and in the assembly… pie crust, then a few stewed apricots in bottom, custard on top, then later merainge (calf’s slobber…I can’t spell the word). Thank you thank you thank you for making this post!

    Could you adapt this into a coconut custard pie?

    Burnsidel: I don’t know the answer to your question. I seldom use coconut as my husband doesn’t care for it…so rarely use it in anything.
    I searched on CITR for Coconut Custard Pie and didn’t find one so next I searched the internet and came up with this recipe. Sounds good and easy…just the way I like things ha ha

    Coconut Custard Pie

    1/2 cup butter or margarine
    1 1/2 cups white sugar
    2 tablespoons all purpose flour
    2 eggs
    1 cup milk
    1 cup flaked coconut
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch single pie
    1 tablespoon flaked coconut

    preheat oven to 350 degrees
    in a large bowl, beat together butter or margarine, sugar, and eggs with electric mixer on low speed. Blend in flour. Mix in 1/2 cup of milk at a time. Add 1 cup coconut and vanilla, and mix well.
    pour filling into unbaked pie shell; sprinkle top with the additional 1 tablespoon coconut before baking, just enough to lightly cover the top. Bake 40-50 minutes or until set.

    Now I know nothing about this recipe…but it sounded easy and sounded good. Let me know how it turns out.
