But this time around I was craving lime (Thanks Lydia for that!) and I had all the ingredients on hand to make this.
The original recipe can be found here and the only change I made was to omit the vanilla and mix in 3 tablespoons of fresh lime juice along with the zest of two limes. (1 in the mix and 1 on top to garnish)
It definitely cured the craving, but the lime is subtle – it you want more lime flavor you have to change the alchemy of recipe – something I am not good with. But feel free to report back with new ratios!
Trust me this won’t hang around the house very long!
…and baking until the top looks delicious and the fruit is just plain oozing goodness?
The hardest part is waiting for it to cool a bit so you don’t burn your mouth!
I used my favorite gluten free mix from Betty and just added brown sugar, pinch of salt and ground cinnamon to the fruit with some pats of butter. Bake at 375 degrees until delicious and you can’t stand the smell anymore! P.S. I did spray the baking dish with cooking spray first.
In fact that is the name of the recipe: Impossibly Easy Coconut Pie. Which I got here.
Thank you Betty!
Think “cheesecake consistency” without all the heaviness, tanginess and the guilt!
This mixes up in about 4 minutes and bakes up perfectly in a glass pie dish. You can just serve warm slices from that.
However, I made it a day ahead and let it cool completely and was able to flip it out and onto a nice plate/platter for presentation, garnish and refrigerate until serving time. If you make ahead and platter it like I did, I would bring it out of the fridge about 20-30 mins before serving so it will be cool but not cold. Cover with plastic wrap while hanging in the fridge so it stays moist.
Although delicious plain, just as is, I added extra shredded coconut on top for garnish and heated some frozen mixed berries with a little honey to serve warm on top. But this would also be very delicious with chocolate sauce. Or maybe pineapple sauce. The combinations are endless.
Just try it. You will love this EASY dessert!
