TRY THIS RECIPE — IT IS POSSIBLE

DEAR MELBA: Beverly Sapp asked for a coconut pie recipe that makes its own crust. Like magic, this one layers into crust, filling and coconut topping.

I have been using this recipe for about 35 years. It's easy and travels well.

IMPOSSIBLE COCONUT CUSTARD PIE

½ cup dry biscuit mix

¾ cup sugar

4 eggs

2 cups milk

1 can (3 ½ ounces) coconut

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 tablespoon butter, softened

Butter 9-inch pie pan. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine all ingredients and spread in prepared pan. Bake 25 to 30 minutes until custard sets.
