Happy Sunday friends! Today I have a delicious pie recipe to share with you. I found this French Coconut Pie recipe on Facebook and I’ve been obsessed with it ever since. I could eat this pie every single day and never tire of it! So many levels of deliciousness are packed inside this coconut pie.

A crackly, crunchy topping and a ooey-gooey, buttery, coconut – vanilla center. This pie is incredible to say the least. It’s been quite some time that I found a pie recipe that totally knocks my socks off, but this one did and it’s sooooooooooooo simple to make. The best part is you probably have all the ingredients right in your pantry.

This pie takes only 5 – 10 minutes to prep and an hour of baking time. When you pull this pie out of the oven you’ll see a golden, buttery, crackly topping staring back at you. Once you make this coconut pie, I promise you’ll be making it again and again. Let’s get started on the recipe.
