This French Coconut Pie Recipe has a crackly, sugary crust with a wonderfully gooey vanilla and coconut center. It is so sinfully good that it really ought to be illegal.
I love EVERYTHING about this pie. In fact, it could be my favorite of pies…The different textures of a light crackly crunch topping and a gooey center… the perfect balance in flavors of butter, vanilla, sugar, and coconut… I mean it is just INCREDIBLE!!!
It is also easy. So easy in fact, that I always double it and make two. It takes about 10 minutes of prep and one hour in the oven. How great is that? If you give that second pie away to someone special, they will absolutely adore you!!!
I will only make this when I know I have guests coming over. Otherwise I will eat that whole thing by myself… In practically one sitting. I can’t help myself. It is like crack. It is so darn good I want to eat more, and more, and more…
However, the last time I made two… one being for my dinner party… and the extra I was going to share with my in-laws…. Well, my guests got the French Coconut Pie fever themselves and tore into that second pie! And then they wanted the leftovers… because it is like crack… they just couldn’t help themselves!!
Needless to say, that extra pie didn’t make it to my poor, sweet in-laws. But I will make them one soon.
And because it is so easy, there really is no excuse why you shouldn’t give it a try and see for yourself!
Now you will see one ingredient in my recipe that will throw you off and question my insanity. You add vinegar to this recipe. Don’t ask. Just do it. I promise it will make your pie perfect. I don’t eat sweets often, so I am only going to make the absolutely best stuff. And because I love my readers, I am sharing my very best favorite with you! You are welcome!
Now go make it and come back to tell me how much you love it!
