It’s summer and the last thing you want to do is turn on the oven, right?
I got you covered.
Even baking the crust is optional here, folks.
You could *almost* make this pie with no electrcity at all… except you need to use milk, which needs to be cold, and then you need to freeze it… so I supose you do need some sort of power .
This pie sports a cocont-garham crust, and a double layer filling. One is tart key lime pie, and the second is creamy coconut cream pie. Topped with crunchy toasted coconut… it’s summertime in pie form.
It’s served icy cold, and the sweet tart creamy filling will have you craving it for breakfast. Go ahead, I’m not judging. And, hey- coconut is good for you, right? 😉
Glass pie plate used in this recipe was provided to me by OXO (Thank you!!!) You can find yours here.
