Pie # 44: Coconut Peach Pie

I made up this recipe while I was in Hawaii a few weeks ago. We had purchased an overabundance of peaches at Costco and they had to be eaten. The ingredients are pretty basic... If I had to make it again, I would add coconut extract to the filling to add even more coconutty flavor.

Store-bought! Or All-Shortening Crust

4-6 cups peeled, sliced peaches
2/3 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch

Crumble Top:
Shredded coconut (about 1 1/2 cups)
A few tablespoons of butter at room temp

Mix filling ingredients together and pour into unbaked pie shell.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Meanwhile prepare crumble top. Combine butter and coconut with fork until mixed well.

Remove pie from oven. Reduce heat to 350 degrees. Sprinkle crumble top over the pie and return to oven for 45-60 more minutes or until filling is bubbly.
