I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Pineapple Coconut Custard Pie

So yesterday was Pi Day (3.14). Actually, double Pi Day as it was 3.14.14.  So I made 2 pies!  

I actually used an 8 inch cake pan for this one.

Ingredients:

Single pie crust
1/2 sugar
1/2 cup syrup (corn preferably, but you can use pancake)
3 tbsp flour
3 eggs
1 cup roughly chopped fresh pineapple
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup sweetened coconut flakes
1/3 cup melted butter or margarine

In a large bowl mix sugar, syrup and flour.
Whisk eggs in one at a time.  Now add pineapple, vanilla and coconut.
Pour into a pastry lined 8 inch cake pan.
Melt butter and brush over top.  I thought this was going to be messing, but it worked fine.
Bake 50 minutes in a 350F oven.
Cool completely and enjoy!
