This recipe is versatile and can also be adapted to make an impossible coconut pie by using Bisquick instead of biscuit mix. Here are the ingredients for the impossible pie variation:
- 1/2 cup Bisquick
- 2 cups whole milk
- 3/4 cup white granulated sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1/4 cup melted butter or margarine
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste
- 1/2 cup flaked coconut
Note: you can try variations using baking mixes or all-purpose flour.
The Recipe How-To
Now for the moment you’ve been waiting for: how to create this amazing coconut pie recipe that will have your family and friends begging for more. Follow these simple instructions and you’ll be on your way to a delectable dessert in no time.
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
- 2 cups milk
- 1 cup biscuit mix
- 4 eggs
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup flaked coconut
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Step One: Mix Your Ingredients
First, preheat your oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, combine the melted butter with the milk, biscuit mix, eggs, sugar, flaked coconut, and vanilla extract. Mix together with an electric mixer on low speed for about 3 minutes until everything is well combined.
Step Two: Pour Your Mixture
Next, pour the mixture into a greased 9-inch pie dish.
Step Three: Bake for Perfection
Bake for about 45 minutes or until the pie sets completely. You’ll know it’s done when the top is golden brown and there’s no more jiggling in the center of the pie.
Step Four: Cool and Serve
Let the amazing coconut pie cool for at least half an hour before serving. You can add some shredded coconut or whipped cream on top for an extra burst of flavor!
Congratulations! You’ve just created a mouth-watering coconut pie that your guests won’t soon forget. Enjoy!
Substitutions and Variations
As with any recipe, there are various substitution options and variations you can make to create your dream coconut pie. Here are a few suggestions to try:
– Baking Mix: If you don’t have biscuit mix or Bisquick in your pantry, you can substitute it with an all-purpose flour mixture or self-rising flour. Use a 1:1 ratio if using all-purpose flour, and add 1.5 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt per cup of flour if using self-rising flour.
– Butter: While we recommend using butter for its rich flavor, margarine can be used instead. Just keep in mind that margarine typically contains more water than butter, leading to a softer crust.
– Milk: If you’re lactose intolerant or looking for a dairy-free option, substitute the milk with soy milk or almond milk.
– Sweetened Coconut Flakes: If you prefer a less sweet pie, use unsweetened coconut flakes instead. You can add more sugar to the mix as needed.
– Add Nuts: Toasted almonds or pecans make a delicious addition to this coconut pie recipe. Fold in 1/2 cup of chopped nuts into the batter before baking.
– Add Chocolate Chips: For a chocolate twist on this classic recipe, top the pie with 1/2 cup of chocolate chips before baking. The melted chocolate will combine perfectly with the creamy coconut custard filling.
Remember that making substitutions and variations can affect the texture and taste of your pie. Don’t be afraid to experiment until you find your perfect combination of flavors!
Serving and Pairing
Now that your amazing coconut pie is ready to be served, it’s time to think about the types of foods and drinks that would complement its rich and creamy flavor.
One of the best things about this pie is how versatile it is. It can be served as a dessert, a breakfast pastry or even as a mid-day snack. When serving as a dessert, you may want to add a dollop of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream on top. This will not only make your pie look more beautiful but will also add a contrasting texture that will make every bite even more satisfying.
For drink pairings, there are several options that would work harmoniously with this amazing coconut pie. A cup of hot coffee or tea would be perfect for breakfast or afternoon breaks. If you’re having this pie as a dessert following dinner, consider pairing it with a sweet white wine like Muscat or Riesling to balance out the richness of the dessert.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating
Let me tell you something, my friend, this amazing coconut pie recipe can save you so much time in the kitchen! Making it ahead of time is super easy and convenient. You simply need to follow the recipe instructions and bake the pie until fully cooked. Once it’s done, let it cool to room temperature and then cover it with a plastic wrap or lid. Store it in your refrigerator for up to three days.
When you are ready to serve, you can reheat the pie in the oven at 350°F (180°C) for 10-15 minutes until it’s warmed through. Another option is to pop a slice of the cold pie into the microwave for about 30 seconds or until desired warmth.
If you have any leftovers, make sure to put them in an airtight container before putting them in the fridge. This way, your amazing coconut pie will stay fresh and delicious for an extra day or two. Trust me, you don’t want to waste any of this goodness!
One more thing – don’t forget to remove any plastic wrap or lid before reheating or serving. We don’t want any surprises when taking a bite of this savory dessert!
I hope these tips will help you enjoy your amazing coconut pie even more. Make-ahead, store and reheat like a pro!
Tips for Perfect Results
Now that you have all the necessary ingredients to make this amazing coconut pie, it’s time to focus on how to achieve the perfect results. Here are some tips that will help you create a delicious dessert that will leave everyone impressed.
Firstly, make sure to use fresh flaked coconut. Stale coconut can easily ruin the flavor and texture of the pie. You can always check for freshness by checking for any discoloration or signs of mold.
Secondly, using a high-quality vanilla extract can really enhance the overall taste of your coconut pie. Vanilla is not just a secondary ingredient; it plays a crucial role in binding all the flavors together.
Thirdly, melted butter is preferable when making this recipe as margarine may affect the flavor and texture adversely.
It is essential to mix your ingredients well before pouring them into the pie crust. Mixing on low speed for around three minutes should do the trick. Blending it too much can cause difficulty in baking, and not blending enough will result in an undercooked center.
Keep a close eye on your oven’s temperature while baking. Different ovens may heat differently, so it’s better to invest in an oven thermometer. Baking at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 50 minutes should yield perfect results.
Once done, remove your beautiful creation from the oven and let it cool down for some time. Cooling allows the custard filling to set properly and makes slicing easier.
Lastly, trying out different combinations of toppings or serving options with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or drizzling chocolate sauce over it can add some extra excitement and taste to your finished product.
By following these tips, you’ll surely be able to dish out an impossible coconut pie that your guests cannot resist!
You’ve made it through the recipe and now you have a delicious coconut pie waiting to be enjoyed.
