This is an old recipe that came from the Amish. This is a pie you'll make over and over again.

Servings: 1 Pie


  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 stick butter or 4 tablespoons softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup shredded coconut


  • Cream eggs, sugar, butter and vanilla with mixer.
  • Add nutmeg, flour and milk and continue mixing until all ingredients are wet. Stir in coconut with a spoon.
  • Spray a 10 inch deep dish pie plate with cooking spray and pour in pie ingredients. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven 55 to 60 minutes until brown on top.


This pie will rise up during baking and then fall after it begins to cool. I always put a baking sheet under this pie to catch any drips when it rises up in the oven. The pie will slice better if you let it cool in the refrigerator before slicing.
