Coconut Pie

IMG_2705

I had leftover short crust pastry that I’d used for the day before for another pie and I’ve also had a desire for something coconuty for a while, so I decided to combine these two together in a shape of Coconut pie. The result was very rewarding because not only I satisfied my cravings for the coconut, but this pie has also a very custardy flavour. So, if you are fan of custard and coconut, look no further then this recipe.

For the pastry:

225 g plain flour

For the pie filling:
