I’ve always loved coconut,

so coming up with a delicious pie for the holidays this year,

I incorporated the great flavor of cranberry into a coconut custard pie.

It’s creamy, thick, and delicious with a nice tanginess from cranberries… all neatly tucked into a pie crust. 

The cranberries allow the pie to be not overly sweet… which even the person with the biggest sweet tooth loved and ate at least 4 pieces of. I think that really says it all!

Oh, how I LOVE pie, don’t you…

I topped the pie with stabilized whipped cream and toasted coconut:

I love pie so much, I’ve been known to bake extra pies… just so I can enjoy a slice for breakfast for a week, things like that always drove my dad crazy, I would just laugh, and put the pie in my mouth. He’s a pie lover too, but not for breakfast, but he’ll certainly enjoy one or two slices for dessert!


Other fun recipes I’ve made with coconut is this beautiful Pink Coconut Cake, and these Coconut Cookies along with this fun Single Layer Coconut Cake with toasted coconut.
