In the summertime, desserts are often filled with fruit, but this Old Fashioned Coconut Custard Pie Recipe is creamy, heavy on the coconut, and perfect for those warm summer days. The cool coconut works well with the custard-based pie filling in this pie recipe, and they both will make the flaky pie crust stand out as well. It’s the perfect pie recipe to bring to a summer party or a potluck, and it’s super simple to make, too. Serve it up with some whipped cream or even some raspberry sauce and enjoy!

i need recipe for old fashion coconut chess pie

I have not had a coconut pie in so long I think I had forgotten how good they are. I read that this recipe is circa the 1930s. Finding recipes like this is always a great find to see how things have changed but not changed is so many years. Ingredients were so much more natural back then than today.

Omg! This pie is divine. My grandma used to make a pie that was similar to this. I will have to give this recipe a try and see how close it is!

This pie looks really good (and not just for summertime). I am very surprised at how little sugar it calls for. Is it just a mildly sweet pie or does the sugar carry a long way with the coconut? Has anyone made this and did you use sweetened or unsweetened coconut flakes?

Hi Tammy - I haven't made the pie, but I saw in the comments on the blog that she uses sweetened coconut. You're right that 1/2 c. sugar doesn't seem like enough, but the sweetened coconut explains it!
