Makes-Its-Own-Crust Coconut Pie



We love coconut cream pie and while this isn't quite the same, it's a quick and easy solution to a craving!

4 eggs
1 3⁄4 cups sugar
1⁄2 cup flour
1⁄4 cup margarine, melted
2 cups milk
1 1⁄2 cups shredded coconut
1 teaspoon vanilla (or 1/2 tsp. vanilla and 1/2 tsp. coconut extract)

Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 10-inch pie pan; set aside. Combine ingredients in order given; mix well. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 45 minutes, or until golden brown.

Middle of pie will appear rather soft. Properly done, the pie will have a delicate crust over the top, sides and bottom. It will be solid enough to cut after it has cooled. The center will be a perfect cream pie.
