Raspberry-Lemon Pie In a Toasted Coconut Crust ~Recipe

Prep: 15 min
Cook: 25 min
Ready in: 2 hours 25 min
Serves: 8


  • 2 cups shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 3 eggs at room temperature
  • 2 egg yolks at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 1/2 pints fresh raspberries


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Spread the coconut onto a baking sheet, and bake in the preheated oven until lightly toasted and golden, about 10 minutes. Watch carefully to prevent burning. Mix the coconut and 1/2 cup melted butter in a bowl, and chill until it begins to firm, about 15 minutes. Pat the coconut mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie dish. Chill until set, at least 30 minutes.
  3. Place sugar, 1/2 cup of butter, lemon juice, eggs, and egg yolks in a saucepan. Place over low heat, and whisk constantly until thickened, 15 to 20 minutes. Do not boil. Strain the custard through a fine-mesh strainer into a bowl, and stir in the lemon zest. Place a sheet of plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the custard, and chill thoroughly.
  4. Spoon the lemon custard into the coconut crust, and top with fresh raspberries.
