More Pie

OK, I could already hear some of you moaning about how yuummy Cousin Sherry's recipe sounds but how much WORK it is! So, this one is for those of you who are more busy than you need to be!!
It's called Impossible Pie because it makes it's own crust... impossible, you say! Yes, it does - well sort of crust! If you're in a hurry, this will fill your sweet tooth!!

Impossible Pies
Makes two 9-inch pies

1 stick unsalted butter, melted, plus more for greasing pie pans
1 3/4 cups sugar
4 large eggs
1/2 cup self-rising flour
2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
2 cups milk

Preheat the oven to 350° and butter two 9-inch glass pie plates.

In a large bowl, whisk the melted butter with the sugar. Add the eggs and beat until smooth. Stir in the flour, coconut and milk. Divide the mixture between the pie plates and bake in the lower third of the oven for about 1 hour, until the pies are firm to the touch and golden. Transfer the pies to a rack and cool completely before serving.

The pies can be refrigerated overnight. Return them to room temperature before serving.

No self-rising flour? Use 1/2 cup all-purpose and add 3/4 teaspoon baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt.  See, I anticipated your next question!
