    How long does this pie keep? Will the crust get soggy if I make this for tomorrow?

  • Anette June 10, 2016, 3:19 pm

    This looks so good! I’m making it for our annual BBQ tomorrow. Will the crust get soggy if I make it tonight and serve tomorrow?

  • Rachel July 29, 2015, 11:49 pm

    Just finished making this, and it’s a absolute hit with my family!

  • Brenda June 29, 2015, 12:37 pm

    So happy I found your recipes. Have been using almond flour which is great for many recipes. I like the smoothness and taste of coconut in baked goods and it is great to have a choice. Thank you.

  • Elizabeth June 6, 2015, 2:03 pm

    Made your pie and can’t wait til after dinner to try it! I wasn’t sure how many young coconuts I’d need, but for anyone wondering, it was 2 young coconuts (I found them at Trader Joe’s).

    Thanks for the recipe!!

  • Stacey February 18, 2014, 7:43 pm

    I love your recipes with the young coconut meat but it is not available where I live. What can I use instead. I am gluten, dairy and egg white free because of allergies. Thanks, Stacey

    Do you ever make whipped cream from coconut cream/ milk?

    I too love coconuts. I am trying to cut out most other fats and have seen that you can do a whipped cream with coconut. I haven’t tried it yet but thought it would go good on a coconut cream pie.

    I have never come across coconut flour but this pie looks so good I will definitely be trying to track some down 🙂

    Yum! This pie looks so decadant and delicious! Now I've got to find some young coconut meat!

  • Tiffany - The Coconut Mama September 14, 2011, 8:10 am

    Hmmm. I'm not sure if dried coconut would work or not. Dried coconut is made from older brown coconuts. The meat is different than from young coconuts. I have another great recipe for a coconut custard that will work great with the coconut flour pie crust. Here it is –

    1 14oz can whole coconut milk
    1 cup whole milk, preferably raw
    1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
    2/3 cup palm sugar/date sugar or any other natural sweetener
    1/4 tsp sea salt
    5 egg yolks
    1/4 cup cornstarch or arrowroot powder
    2 Tbs butter, cut into 1/4in pieces and chilled
    1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

    1.Bring coconut milk, milk, shredded coconut, 1/3 cup sweetener, and salt to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally.

    2.As the milk mixture begins to simmer, in a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, and remaining 1/3 cup sweetener and cornstarch/arrowroot until smooth.

    3.Mix 1 cup of milk mixture into yolks (to temper). Then slowly whisk the tempered yolks into simmering milk mixture and reduce the heat to medium. Whisking constantly, bring the mixture to a simmer and cook until thickened and when bubbles burst on the surface, about 30 seconds. Take off the heat and mix in butter and vanilla.

    4.Pour warm filling into baked and cooled crust.

    Tiffany,
    Can I use a coconut dried meat like “Let's Do Organics” unsweetened coconut shreds? I can't find a reliable source for fresh coconuts.

    Also wanted to let you know I am starting a new Linky for just this sort of topic (it's my 100th post). The topics you write about are what my readers are looking for. You are invited to link up Wed thru Sat.
    Thanks!

  • Brenna @ Almost All The Truth September 13, 2011, 11:25 pm

    Sounds delicious! I am very much addicted to coconut right now, but I haven't done much with the coconut flour yet. That will have to be next!

  • Adrienne @ Whole New Mom September 13, 2011, 5:12 pm

    Hi – thanks for sharing this @ Traditional Tuesdays.

    I have a question – can I sub dried coconut (we don't buy fresh that often)?

    I use a lot of coconut, but I haven't made recipes w/ fresh coconut meat.

    Thanks!

  • judee@glutenfreeA-Z September 13, 2011, 9:44 am

    I've been reading your blog for awhile, but somehow missed the coconut flour pie crust back in January. Excellent…now I can use it to make quiche or chicken pot pie too!!
