Loraine Ladner's Coconut Pie

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cans Pet evaporated milk
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 8 cups water
  • 2 Tbs vanilla extract
  • 2 lbs. coconut
  • 6-8 pie crusts of your choice (we used graham cracker crusts) 

Mix 1 1/2 cups flour with a little water until mixture is smooth, and set aside for later.

Mix eggs, sugar, milks, butter, and water in large pot. Cook over medium heat until mixture comes to a rolling boil. Stir occasionally. When mixture starts to boil, add in the flour mixture and stir constantly to keep from sticking. Bring the mixture back to a boil and cook for about 3 minutes.

Take it off the heat and add 2 Tbs. of vanilla flavoring and 2 lbs. of coconut. Stir mixture until well mixed. Dip the mixture out of the pot and into pie crusts.

Cool completely and refrigerate pies for at least 1-2 hours.
