RECIPE: Recipe Request: Perkins' Restaurant Coconut Cream Pie

posie4uOctober 21, 2006

I had a wonderful recipe for Perkins' Coconut Cream Pie; when my computer crashed, I lost it and cannot find a copy anywhere. Evaporated canned milk was used in the recipe, 3 eggs, the custard was cooked, and that is about all I can remember. I am hoping someone has that recipe.

This might be similar. It's from the Griffin Food Co.

Coconut Cream Pie
3 egg yolks
3/4 c. Griffin's Flake Coconut
1 c. sugar
1 c. evaporated milk
1 c. water
3 Tbsp. butter
1 Tbsp. vanilla
3 Tbsp. Flour
1 tsp. salt

In a 2-qt. saucepan, beat 3 eggs. Turn on heat, add the milk and water. In a bowl, mix sugar and flour together and add to the egg mixture, stirring frequently. Add vanilla and salt and cook until mixture thickens. Remove from heat and add coconut and butter. Mix well and pour into a baked 9" pie shell.

Meringue
3 egg whites
3-4 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. corn starch
1 c. Griffin's Flake Coconut

In a mixing bowl whip at high speed 3 egg whites until stiff. To this mixture add sugar, vanilla and corn starch. Beat again until thoroughly mixed and put on top of the pie filling. Sprinkle coconut on the top of meringue. Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.

Thank you so much, Ginger. Although I do not recognize this as the recipe, it gives me a starting point. The recipe I had did not call for water. Hopefully, experimentation will result in the wonderful recipe I had.

Here's a recipe for a coconut custard pie from a long gone but well remembered bakery in Washington, DC

STEPHENSON COCONUT CUSTARD PIE (Makes 1 pie)
1 cup sugar
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cornstarch
4 eggs
3 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup coconut
1 deep 9-inch or 10-inch pie crust, uncooked

Combine sugar, salt and cornstarch. Beat eggs and add to dry ingredients. Beat in milk and vanilla. Sprinkle coconut over bottom of pie crust, then pour in the egg mixture. Bake 15 minutes at 400 degrees, reduce oven to 350 degrees for 30 to 45 minutes, until custard is firm.

You can top it with anything you want.
