Coconut Pecan Pie for Potluck Sunday and a Frugal Pie Tip. Good Morning and Happy Sunday. Today I am sharing a recipe for another one of my favorite pies, Coconut Pecan Pie!!!!! I know everytime I post a pie recipe I say that, but you know I'm a sucker for a good pie. I have a weakness for Coconut pie and Pecan pie, and today's recipe has the best of both. Coconut Pecan Pie reminds me a little bit of a buttermilk or chess pie but with nuts and coconut. My favorite part of this pie is the crispy crunchy topping. The first time I had this particular pie was years ago at my mother in laws house for Thanksgiving.

I had never heard of coconut pecan pie, so I was pretty excited to get a slice. Me and pie we go hand in hand. All I can say is this pie had me at the first bite. What a awesome combination of buttermilk, pecans and sweet coconut. When I went to bed later that night I couldn't get that pie out of my head. After everyone went to sleep I got up and sliced me off another piece. I couldn't help it,this pie is that good. My mother in law was nice enough to pass on this recipe to me so we can enjoy this wonderful pie at our house. If you love pecan pie then your going to love coconut pecan pie.

Coconut Pecan Pie for Potluck Sunday and a Frugal Pie Tip.Here is a great Pie Tip:
About half way through I could see that my pie crust was really starting to brown fast. For this problem I use a handy idea that I got from my Ma maw Eaves, she takes a disposable pie plate and cuts out the middle to make a homemade pie guard. Just invert over a baking pie to prevent the crust from getting to brown. With the middle being cut out the pie can still bake without being having to cover the whole pie. I love this idea because I always have metal pie plated left over from a particular pie. So instead of throwing them out I just wash them and make pie guards. I love this frugal idea, thank you Ma maw!!!
