My favorite desserts are creme brulees, custards, panna cottas etc but I kept the grandbabies yesterday & didn't have time to make anything fancy. So I made my "go-to" recipe for quick, easy, delicious & custardy. A Coconut Impossible Pie. You literally throw it in a blender & then you can gussy it up however you want. I garnished the "pie" (there's no real crust...just a very, very thin, floury layer on the bottom) w/ edible flowers & mint, from my garden. Look how beautiful it looks & I only spent about 5 minutes labor on it!
Liquefied raspbery jam in the microwave for a few seconds & then drizzled it on the plate as a garnish. If you love coconut & love custard...you'll love this dessert!
Impossible Coconut Pie
2 cups milk
1/2 cup baking mix
1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup white sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract (I sometimes use rum extract, real rum or other extract flavors)
1 cup flaked coconut
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9 inch pie plate.
Combine milk, sugar, biscuit mix, eggs, butter or margarine, and vanilla in blender container. Cover, and blend on low speed for 3 minutes. Pour into prepared pie plate. Let stand about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with coconut.
Bake for 40 minutes. Serve warm.
I usually but not always bake it in a water bath & don't forget to decrease the temp 25 degrees if you bake it in a glass pan. I've made another version of this using pumpkin & it's just as good & just as easy.
Now I'm off to see all of your desserts! http://houseinroses.blogspot.com/
