Lime in da Coconut Pie

This is a pie I entered into a Taste of Home recipe contest once that was featured in one of their cookbooks!

Lime in da Coconut Pie
1 9-inch pie pastry
3 medium limes
2 cups, plus 2 tablespoons sweetened flaked coconut, divided
1 can (13.66 ounces) coconut milk
4 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon coconut extract, optional
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon powdered sugar

Zest and juice the limes then add both the zest and juice to a blender. Add 1 cup coconut, coconut milk, eggs, sugar, flour, salt and, if desired, extract. Cover and process until blended. Add an additional 1 cup coconut; cover and pulse just until combined. Pour mixture into pie pastry.

Bake at 350 degrees 50-55 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool to room temperature then refrigerate until set.

In a small bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add powdered sugar; beat until soft peaks form. Spread over pie. Sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons coconut before serving (toast coconut if desired).

Hi there! While I’m not able to respond to every comment, I try hard to answer any questions that haven’t been addressed in the post, recipe or in other comments.

I can tell you now 1) I have no idea if you can substitute Minute Rice or brown rice in my recipes because I’ve never used them and 2) If I know how to convert a recipe to a Crock Pot version, I will make a note about it (otherwise, I don’t know).

And though I may not respond to them all, I do read each and every comment and I LOVE to hear from you guys! Thanks, y’all! - Mandy
