I made 4 of these pies, a pound cake, and a large peach cobbler, and there is nothing left except a couple of pieces of the poundcake!
The best part is the this pie was soooo easy to make.

1 & 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup unsweeetened coconut milk
1 T. all purpose flour
2 large eggs
2 egg yolks
1/2 t. pure vanilla
Minced zest and juice of 1 lime
Pinch of salt
9 inch pie crust (please make your own)

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
Whisk all ingredients together in a large bowl until well incorporated
Pour into your pie shell and place on a baking/cookie sheet.
BAKE until the fillings is just set, yet still a bit slightly jiggly, about 40-50 minutes.
Remove from the oven and cool to room temp on a rack.

NOTE: if you crust browns fast make a tin foil ring and place around the crust.

Chill the pie if not serving right away. Pie should be brought to room temp if chilled. I like this pie chilled or room temp. It is delicious!

Better make two because it will not last very long. A dollop of whipped cream or fresh berries really make this special.
