Well – there are a few things in this old world I will not eat and coconut is one of them. However, my husband like coconut pie. LOVES it is more like it. So, to make it easy on myself when making a dish I don’t like, I make this pie. Quick and easy coconut pie. I’m out of the kitchen in a hurry and he’s a man with a happy tummy.
No Crust Coconut Pie
2 cups milk
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup biscuit mix
1/4 cup butter
1 1/2 teaspoon banilla
1 cup flaked coconut
Combine milk, sugar, biscuit mix, eggs, butter and vanilla in electric blender container. Blend on low speed for 3 minutes. Pour into a greased 9 inch pie pan. Let stand 5 minutes. Then, sprinkle with coconut. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.

Good Old-fashion Apple Pie! Nothing smells more wonderful while this baby bakes in the oven. Want to see them smile, make this pie. Want your grown kids or grand-kids to come over more often. Make this pie. No, seriously. Make this pie!
Mimi’s Apple Pie
6 cups sliced, tart apples (I use granny smith apples and one sweet apple. The sweet apple makes a lot of juice.)
3/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 Tbsp. butter
Place sliced apples in an unbaked pie shell. Mix dry ingredients and sprinkle over the apples. Dot with butter and cover with a top crust. Seal edges and cut slits in the top of crust. Brush crust with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 400 degrees for 40 to 50 minutes.
Pure Yumminess! Y’all enjoy.

Have you buzzed through the produce section at Wal-Mart (or your local grocery store) lately and taken a look at the blueberries this year? They look pretty plump and tasty. Probably all the spring rains. Well – grab a couple of packages and make this pie soon. Sure would be a pretty ‘blue’ dish for a 4th of July celebration or maybe for Father’s Day next weekend. This recipe shared by my Aunt Del from Zachary, Louisiana. Thanks Aunt Del!
Aunt Del’s Blueberry Pie
2 cups blueberries
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup sugar
¼ cup margarine or butter
unbaked pie shell (pie crust recipe below)
3 heaping Tbsp. flour
Mix ingredients except for blueberries until well blended. Stir in berries and pour into unbaked pie shell and bake 45-50 minutes at 350 degrees. Top cooled pie with cool whip or ice cream when served.
Easy Pie Crust (makes 2 crusts)
1 and ½ cups flour
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup Crisco shortening
1/3 cup milk
Mix flour and salt. Cut in the Crisco to make a crumbly mixture. Stir in milk to form dough. Flour a pastry cloth and cover a rolling pin with a pastry sleeve which has been floured. Roll out half of dough for one crust. Makes two crusts.
