Old Fashioned Coconut Custard Pie

This Old Fashioned Coconut Custard Pie is similar to what you would imagine a coconut crème brulee might be. The flaky pie crust is filled with loads of shredded coconut set in a baked custard.

I am constantly trying to push my comfort zone when it comes to baking. The best way to challenge yourself is to try and try again! Often times, I will test recipes from cookbooks, new and old. What I love about older cookbooks, is that the details are very vague, and it leaves the interpretation up to you.

Vintage Coconut Custard Pie.

This Old Fashioned Coconut Custard Pie was adapted from a cookbook that was copyright from 1933, and this edition was printed in 1937. The pages are an aged yellow, and it smells like the library. There are some notes inside the front cover from the pervious owner, and all the photos are in black and white. These are the best kind of cookbooks!

The original name for this was “Vanity Fair Coconut Custard Pie”. I have never baked anything like this before. The ingredients are simple: 3 eggs, sugar, a dash of salt, milk and lots of coconut. After it is baked, it reminds me of crème brulee in that the filling is a baked custard.

When I originally cut into this pie, I wasn’t sure if it was quite right, but after looking through several updated versions of the recipe, I saw that it in fact resembled the vintage pie.

I baked this recipe a second time, adding my own spin to the recipe. Instead of a full 3 cups of milk, I substituted 1 cup of coconut milk. The original recipe, while full of coconut flakes, did not have enough flavor for me. So I decided to also add one teaspoon of coconut extract, and I doubled the amount of coconut flakes that the recipe called for. I was much happier with the second version.

Since the filling is pretty much pure liquid, I was not sure if the crust would get soggy. Turns out it was actually perfect! It was soft, yet flaky. I decided that I would keep this pie refrigerated, but the recipe did not specify. I think I liked the idea of a cold pie better for the summer anyway!

This pie definitely needs to cool all the way before serving. The second time I baked this pie, I baked it for an additional 10 minutes. The filling will still be a bit jiggly, which will make you question whether it is done for not. I still used a toothpick to see if it was baked through, and it was. As it cools, it will become more firm.

I also discovered that the coconut milk was thicker than the skim milk that I was using. So there was some liquid that seeped out onto the top. I just dabbed it with a paper towel and it was fine. You might want to consider using 2% milk or something with a bit more fat in it than skim milk.

For the crust, you should use your favorite recipe. My personal favorite is from Pioneer woman, but the recipe makes 2 full crusts. I usually end up freezing one. I also have a gluten-free pie crust that I adapted from Ree’s recipe. Remember, that with any pie crust, it is better to work with it cold! I struggle to make the prettiest edges, but practice makes perfect, right? I baked this on the lower shelf in my oven so that my crust did not burn!

When I served this pie to my friends, they suggested that it would be awesome with a drizzle of raspberry sauce, and I couldn’t agree more!
