Sunday desserts...



Today's confection: French Coconut Pie...the recipe from Cocinando con Alena linked here.  

I chose it primarily because I had all the ingredients.  It was quick and easy to put together.  The filling's top baked into a delicate crunch.  It was a little too sweet for me, but so good that I will definitely make again and try tweaking the amount of sugar called for.  

It is similar to a buttermilk pie (my favorite pie), but with no buttermilk...or milk for that matter...but the addition of the coconut makes it chewier.

  1. That looks yummy! We all love buttermilk pie, which I make from a fantastic Amish recipe, so this will be a good one to try as well. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi, Pamela. It's not exactly the Whole 30...more like, "I can't believe I ate the whole thing." :)

    1. Oh, mine TOO, LB. I really love the Buttermilk Pie recipe that was in the Luby's cookbook, because it wasn't too sweet. I think I have it up over at What's Cookin' 4 Miles North of Nowhere if I'm not mistaken.
