Buko Pie Recipe

Simply Homemade -Buko Pie Recipe

Sweet Morning Everyone!

 How you guys doing? It's been a hectic and cold week for me! Yup- its already snowing here in my place! I love the snow but not really liking the cold though. It's been like 3 weeks since my last blog post and I missed you all! Anyways! Whose excited for some Buko Pie?? It's been like forever since I had my last sliced of  this Filipino delicacy, Can you tell?. So, I challenge myself to make some Buko Pie-- and it went perfect! I felt nervous at first but after I made the Pie filling I'm just on it! Wohoo! I'm just so happy that the pie turned out good and its delicious!  I promise:)
On this recipe I used frozen young coconut meat that I bought from Asian store. I would recommend to used fresh coconut if you have some (can't beat fresh coconut meat and buko juice on this recipe). I also made a  homemade pie crust for top layer of the pie but you can totally grab some at the store all ready for you. This Buko Pie reminds me back home! A perfect treat anytime of the day. I can't wait to share my first buko pie experience with you all. I'm getting excited just by writing about this recipe (hahah) I hope you too! Are you ready to make some Buko Pie? Come on join me in my kitchen as we unfold the process on how to make delicious Buko Pie Homemade!
Check out the recipe below! Enjoy:)

 Notes: Store bought pie crust is good for easy cooking. If want to make your own pie crust. I got a recipe for you below that I used for the top layer of the pie. Just double the recipe if you decide to make the bottom and the top layer of the crust.
-Adjust the cooking time if you have to,:)

Buko Pie Filling :
1 (16oz) Frozen young coconut meat- thawned
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup cornstarch diluted in 1/2 cup young coconut water
1/2 cup milk
Frozen Pie Crust- store bought

Butter flaky Pie Crust
1 1/4 All purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter- chopped
1/4 cup Ice cold water or 1/4 cup 7up or Sprite soda

First let's start make the filling:
1.) In medium pan. Heat up the milk. Add the sugar and stir well.
2.) Meantime, combine the cornstarch and coconut juice- set aside.
3.) Once the milk boils. Add the coconut meat include the juice and let it cook for 3-5 minutes.
4.) Add the diluted cornstarch and stir to avoid lumps.
5.) Keep stirring until the pie filling is cooked. Turn off the heat and cool down.

Pie Crust:
1.) In large bowl combine the flour, salt, chopped butter. Mix the mixture.
2.) Add the water or lime soda and mix well. Put the dough in the baggie and keep it refrigerated until you ready to used it.
3.) Sprinkle little flour on the board, roll the dough until you achieve the right thickness.
4.) Covered your buko pie with your homemade pie crust. Trim the side, used fork to seal the edge of the pie and for cute decoration on the side as well.
5.) Poke the pie on the middle and on the side. Brush with egg-wash to achieve that golden brown color.

BAKE at 375 preheated oven for 40-45 minutes
