In the interest of full disclosure, I found this recipe on the web three or four years ago; a search prompted by my inability to find a decent coconut pie anywhere.
Pre-heat over to 350 degrees.
Mix: 3 beaten eggs, 1 1/2 cups sugar, 1/2 cup melted butter, 4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice (about 1/2 a lemon’s worth), 1 teaspoon vanilla, pinch salt. Then stir in 1 1/3 cups coconut.
Put on a pie crust shield; in other words, take some strips of tin foil wide enough to cover the exposed crust and lightly crimp them over it.
Bake 30 minutes, then remove the shield and bake another 10 to 20 minutes until it sets, i.e., it will no longer jiggle.
If it seems a bit too sweet that’s because a) it is very sweet or b) you were using sweetened coconut. Adjust according to taste. I like to use turbinado sugar, which may make the pie a bit darker and denser, but I like the flavor. The pie will require a sharp knife, firmly wielded.
If you like coconut and appreciate rich food, then you’ll probably enjoy this pie.
No, we’re not talking about the fellowship meal. We’ve experienced some problems with comments on our site: we’ve been receiving phony posts that link to disreputable commercial pages.

He would go on to serve the State of Florida in both the Senate and the House of Representatives.
First elected to the U.S. Senate in 1938, Sen. Pepper was a staunch ally of Franklin Roosevelt and his New Deal reforms. He championed working people and the poor, Continue reading →
This blog site is intended to serve the congregation of The First Universalist Church as a source of information, communication and entertainment. It also is to introduce the wider community to our fellowship, and vice versa. Many of you are well acquainted with “blogging,” but for those who aren’t the blogging platform enables visitors to participate in discussions by posting “comments.” To read the comments of others and to leave your comment, simply click on the grey link that mentions “comments” under the title of each article, or “post.” That’s the hard part. From there on, it’s easy!
This site is just beginning; it will build and become more useful with time, cooperation and participation. The 21st Century is our third. Let’s make the most of it!
