Easy Coconut Pie Crust
0

7 posts in this topic

I just saw this in today's newspaper--I haven't tried it yet, so I can't vouch for how good it might be, but thought I'd post it immediately!

COCONUT PIE CRUST

Mix together 1/4 cup softened butter and 2 cups shredded coconut. Press into a 9-inch pie pan. Bake at 300 degrees or until crust is lightly browned. Cool before filling.

This is for pie fillings that do not need to be baked (would make a good substitute for graham cracker crusts). I am assuming that the sweetened shredded coconut that we can easily get at the supermarket would work just fine here.

If anyone tries it before I do, post the results here!!!!! :)

I didn't do that exactly but I just took a bag of gluten/dairy free coconut cookies (I was in Australia at the time and know that they weren't cookies that are available in the US but any brand, I'm sure, would work fine), crushed them up and added melted dairy free butter until the whole thing stuck together, patted it into a pie pan and stuck it in the oven for about 10 minutes until it was golden brown. I used it as the crust for a banana cream pie - delicious and so easy!

This sounds great. Might have to try it soon. I have coconut left over from ambrosia I made for Labor Day.

YUM

It will need to be the sweetened type. Unsweetened shredded coconut will just end up butter-toasted.

I had that recipe from another source and it's not bad if you bake it and then break it into pieces and eat it as a cookie but it is very greasy.

Hmmm...I wonder if it would work to cut the butter in half and throw in a beaten egg?

I would not add a beaten egg, the amount of butter really sounds fine, I have made something similar a lot.

Sometimes I just use whatever cookie crumbs I have in the freezer, add butter, chopped nuts & or coconut.

But the favorite of my office is: (measurements are not exact because I really do not measure) 1 cup of almond flour, about 1/2 stick of butter, a cup or so of chopped pecans & a heaping cup of coconut, mix it all up & press in pie pan, bake at 350 degrees until it starts to brown.

I let the crust cool,

Then I take a can of sweetened condensed milk & stir in 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons (or a little more if you really want tart) fresh squeezed lemon juice, stir till all is blended, pour into pie shell & put in refrigerator at least 24 hours before cutting but is really better 2 days later - if you can keep everyone out of it.

You can also use lime juice, or the traditional key limes is excellent !!!!

Note: some recipes will list this pie filling with a raw egg mixed in - ugh, I have never done this & I cannot see why anyone would put a raw egg in it.

    • Are you vegan or vegetarian?   I am concerned about your lack of protein and fats in your diet.  These diets can work when you are also gluten free, but as a celiac you can be malnourished.  It is hard to heal when you are slowly starving yourself.   No offense, but some newly diagnosed celiacs end up with food disorders.  Perhaps working with a dietician can help.   What actually are your blood glucose levels?  Did you know that just as Hashimoto's is common with celiacs, so is type 1 diabetes?   Ask your doctor for antibodies testing for Type 1 diabetes (TD1), if your blood glucose levels are not in the normal  range.  You can develop TD1 (LADA) at anytime.   For adults there is a "honeymoon" period which can last for up to five years.  Be on the watch for other AI issues (besides TD1) too.   It is so important to monitor your health after a celiac disease diagnosis!  
    • He was not IGA deficient.  I'm still hoping we can convince the base GI to approve his referral.   Thanks for that thread about TTG Igg.  That's exactly what I was wondering. 
    • Star Anise Foods  rice paper and spring rolls are gluten free they have brown and white rice versions. I have not had issues with these in the past when I used to use them. Should be able to find them on amazon.
    • Hi strawberrymoon, If you are having a blood sugar problem, that can cause nerve damage and tingling.  Nerve damage is often associated with diabetes.  You can ask your doctor to check your A1C level to get an idea how it has been doing. It would probably help your glucose levels to stick with a paleo style diet, avoiding most carbs.  Carbs and meats have a different affect on blood glucose.  Carbs tend to spike blood glucose while meats even it out. There are a lot of negative changes that can happen with high blood glucose.  It is wise to try and get it under control ASAP.  My brother has lost most of his vision in one eye now from high blood glucose.  And he has the tingling symptoms you described.  The tingling can progress to pain in time.  My brother chose to ignore his diabetes and is paying the price for it.  He is doing better at it now but the damage is done. Yes, B-12 deficiency can cause those kind of nerve symptoms.  But if you have high blood sugar that is the more common cause.   Diabetes is not a rare condition.
    • I have been living in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, for two years, and finding gluten-free food is proving more difficult than I thought, even if I am cooking my own food. Wheat flour, called "bot mi" in Vietnamese, seems to creep into a lot of stuff nowadays. What's more, manufacturers do not feel it is important to list bot mi in the ingredients on a food's packaging unless it is a principle ingredient in the food. In other words, soy sauces or wraps with just a tiny bit of wheat flour added to add a touch of thickness or pliability are not guaranteed to list the ingredient. For some genetic reason, Vietnamese people are not nearly as susceptible to food allergies as Westerners - it probably has something to do with exposure to less hygenic foodstuffs having built up an immunity over hundreds of years - so it is not really considered important to split hairs in that department over here. Anyway, I love rice paper but have often gotten glutened by it when I have it. Can any celiac who could tell if a product had gluten by more than just the ingredient list on the back let me know a definitively gluten-free rice paper brand? I know that very few rice paper brands actually list wheat flour in the ingredients, but I don't 100% trust the ingredients list for products made by Vietnamese companies. Call me paranoid. By the way, I have a neurological condition that irreversably breaks down my immune system when I ingest gluten, so I don't want to experiment with trial by fire here.
