French Coconut Pie (Trisha Yearwood Recipe)

French Coconut Pie (Trisha Yearwood Recipe)


  • 2 cups frozen grated coconut, thawed (frozen coconut is unsweetened) use unsweetened coconut
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 Tablespoon flour
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla
  • one 9 inch pie crust, homemade or store bought


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    If using a store bought crust thaw it first before starting the recipe. Place the eggs,coconut,sugar,buttermilk,butter, flour and vanilla into a stand mixer. Using the whip attachment, beat the ingredients until well combined. If using a hand mixer, place the ingredients in a large bowl and beat until the ingredients are well combined and look creamy. 
    Place the filling into the pie shell, bake at 350 degrees for 45 - 50 minutes or until the pie is lightly browned on top and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.


If the pie filling looks a little curdled when you're beating it, just keep beating. It all comes together to make a creamy pie filling.
