Coconut Custard Pie for One!

Hey everyone-Happy Foodie Friday and Sweets for Saturday! I thought I'd play with my mini pie dish and treat myself to a coconut custard pie-oh yea! 

Earl says "did someone say pie?"
(Guess that means it's really for two...)
I used the custard recipe from by BHG Red and White Check Cookbook but only made one forth of it.
Coconut Custard Pie - for one
4 eggs - I used 1
1/2 C sugar - I used 1/8 C
1/2 tsp vanilla - I used 1/8 tsp
1/4 tsp salt - I used a little
2 1/2 C milk - I used 1/2 C and 1/8 C
Ground nutmeg - I'll leave this out the next time
I just added a big handful of coconut to this recipe.
  • Oven to 450, bake crust for 5 minutes, cool.
  • For filling, mix egg, sugar, vanilla and salt. Gradually add milk and mix well.
  • Place pie on oven rack, add coconut, pour in filling. (I placed the pie dish on a baking tray, filled it, then put that in the oven. Glad I did, it caught some dripping)
  • Sprinkle with nutmeg.
  • Cover edge of crust with foil. (I just laid foil over the pie.)
  • Reduce oven temp to 350 and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake for another 30 minutes or until knife inserted off center comes out clean.
  • Cool pie on wire rack.
Note: I liked this! It's a nice easy recipe, especially if I have the crust ready to go in the freezer!

Have a happy day:@)

  2. Oh, this looks really good! I have never been good at reducing a recipe. Seems I always forget and put one ingredient in full force!

    I am so gonna do this one! I am getting the pans for it tomorrow! I can't wait to do it too!

  5. Looks delicious! I'd have to do it for two but it's a great idea. Well, all but me having to make the pie crust.

    Best,

  11. I'm thinking that without the crust and stevia instead of sugar, I could make this delish little treat low-carb. You are so kind to share with Earl!

  12. This looks like a great pie. I made a custard pie the other day which would have really benefited from some coconut.

  14. This is my absolute, hands down favorite pie! And I don't like coconut! Go figure!!!! Is it okay to lust after a pie? YOur pictures are so expresssive and beautiful that I can almost taste it!
    As soon as the kitchen is done, I am making this great recipe, unless you want to send me your pie? But I would probably have to fight Earl for it, wouldn't I?
    Thanks for the great recipe!!!!

  15. Pie! Oh, yummy! I hope you didn't let Earl have it all! Oh, this looks so good and sounds delish, Lynn! I'm gonna do this. I don't make pie dough so I'll have to go get some. When I try to make dough it's either like paper or a stone! I'll just buy it.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  17. Is Earl a candle? I just love him!

  18. That sounds AMAZING! I love custards, and it's great that it just serves one, since custards don't reheat well and just don't seem to taste as good chilled.
