Nana’s Coconut Pie is another one of my late grandmothers insanely delicious pie recipes that I needed to share with you all! With baking season right around the corner, this is a must make!
I always appreciated how simple her delicious pie recipes were, you would think they came straight out of a bakery!
This is a tried-and-true old-fashioned coconut pie recipe that is sure to impress! Perfect for the holidays, bake sales, pot lucks or any occasion!
I beg you – please, pleaseeeee – do not put cool whip on this incredible pie. If you are going to go to all the trouble of making a coconut pie from scratch, please take the time to whip up real whipped cream. It is so worth it. It makes all the difference!
Its delicious as is or topped with homemade whipped cream, vanilla ice cream or extra toasted coconut or even caramel!
I made this pie for Thanksgiving and Christmas last year as well as for 3 bake sales! my whole family loved it! It has a natural, not too sweet flavor to it. You will adore this pie. I know many people always ask me to post easy recipes here on the blog because not everyone is an expert baker, so this pie is wonderful if you consider yourself a beginner- it’s not the most difficult pie to make!
