I read the thread above about SteveinLA while I was baking a coconut pie from a recipe that he had researched and found for me. He shared it via email, so I thought I should share it with everyone here. Enjoy!!
Originally printed in the Honolulu Advertiser. Makes 8 servings.
3 cups FRESH GRATED COCONUT (or dried unsweetened coconut)
3 Tbsp CORNSTARCH
1 ½ cups WATER (I used Coconut Water)
2 cups SUGAR (I cut this back a tad)
1 UNBAKED TWO-CRUST PIE SHELL
Preheat oven to 375º F.
If using fresh coconut, squeeze moisture from grated coconut and place in a medium bowl. Whisk together cornstarch and ½ cup water to form a smooth paste. Pour over coconut, then add remaining water and sugar and mix well. Place in pie shell and cover with crust.
Bake at 375º F, 30 to 40 minutes.
