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.

    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet. Welcome to the forum!
    • I have microscopic colitis. Having a bad flare of D.  On Budesonide for first time for this. It's helping some- only on it a week. Do you think gluten free would help even if tested negative a few years ago?  Was gluten free yesterday and no BM changes. Even had cramps this AM that wasn't really having before. Thank you!!
    • Do you want to tell us the name of it ans where it is located.  maybe someone else will be looking for a restaurant there. Also, it is very helpful if you go to Find me Gluten Free and review it.
    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.
