Crusty Coconut Pie

There are times when I miss my Grandmother. I miss her soft voice, her eyes that would twinkle with mischief, her quiet love. When I’m with family, I bake her Crusty Coconut Pie and she is with me. There is rarely a holiday when this pie does not sit on the counter — the smell of coconut and vanilla welcome guests.

1 c milk

2 1/2 c coconut

1/2 c milk

2 c sugar

6 eggs, slightly beaten

2 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Pour milk over coconut and set aside while creaming butter and sugar. Add eggs and beat mixture well. Add milk, coconut, and flavoring. Pour into unbaked shell. Bake for 45 minutes until center is done.
