Let's Eat Pie

Almost as popular as traditional Pecan Pie, this delicious Japanese Fruit Pie graces many dinner tables here in the South.
The combination of pecans, raisins, and coconut suspended in a chess-pie type of filling is wonderfully rich and toothsome.

Japanese Fruit Pie
1 deep dish 9 inch unbaked pie shell
1 stick of melted butter ( 1/2 cup )
1 1/2 cups of white sugar
1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar
1tsp. vanilla extract
3 large eggs ( slightly beaten )
1/2 cup each of raisins, shredded coconut, (I like a little more) chopped pecan pieces.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a medium mixing bowl combine eggs, butter, sugar, vinegar and vanilla extract.
Beat until smooth. Stir in pecans, coconut, and raisins.
Pour mixture into pastry shell.
Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes. Cool before serving.

Serve topped with vanilla ice cream or whipped fresh cream.

Rich and to die for Jo. I have never hear of it though I love chess pie and pecan pie. I wish I was there.

Thanks for the recipe, I may have to leave out the raisins, but my hubby sure does love pecans and coconut. I have never tried this before. Thanks for introducing it to me!

Do you use sweetened or unsweetened coconut? Thanks.

That would be sweetened.
