Quick Apricot Coconut Pie - Stone Fruits #2

Wednesday, September 11, 2013

A pie... how is it a pie? hmmm.
A coconut crust, apricot filling and covered with almonds? LOL. Don't ask me.

This is another recipe from my "good to see only" cookbook. I took the idea, and ditched all the liquids in the recipe, added in lime zest to boost the coconut and apricot, and changed whatever I think is the better way. The result was perfect for me. I wonder what will happen with that extra 1 cup of milk in this. It'll look like baked oatmeal I guess. It's already so moist now.... it will crumble if the golden base is not formed properly

My kids didn't take this pie well, but for me, I super dee duper loved it. Baked buttery coconut is always the better choice for me, and when there's lime and apricots , it became the winner. My first seating, I ate 1/4 of it. I told myself, STOP IT! I gained my consciousness and then quickly put it away from my sight. And each morning, I gleefully reheated it for breakfast. 1/6 of the pie at a time. LOL. It's just a 7 inch pie!

If you don't want to use apricots, I think ripe pineapple will be nice too. Banana too! Yumz. But if you don't like coconut, think twice before you want to try this. It's loaded with it. Every bite is moist tender delicious coconut.

Oh yes, the dark brown crust is the best part!
