Easter is just around the corner so we would like to give you some ideas to celebrate the holiday with some delicious desserts. Traditional Easter desserts tastes just as good as they did when you were young.  No Spring-Easter is complete without carrot cake. This is one of my favorite traditional desserts to prepare and serve. One piece of this homemade carrot cake with its fluffy buttery frosting is never enough. Of coarse,  we cannot forget coconut. This Crustless Coconut Cream Pie is so yummy and makes its own crust. It is so easy! Even hunting chocolate eggs is not enough for the chocolate lover. They will all want to taste this Four Layer Chocolate dessert before the day is over.

1 cup white sugar

3/4 stick butter softened

1 cup whole milk

1 cup 1/2 and 1/2

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 1/3 cups flaked coconut (sweetened)

4 eggs beaten

Preheat oven 350°.. Lightly grease and dust with flour a 9.5 inch deep dish pie pan. In a mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, butter, whole milk, 1/2 and 1/2, vanilla extract, coconut, and beaten eggs. Mix well with a mixer. Pour into prepared pie pan. Bake 45 to 50 minutes until golden brown and knife inserted in center comes out clean. The pie will puff up but when you take it out of the oven and it cools the center of the fall, creating a crustless outer edge. You can sprinkle a little nutmeg on top before baking if you like. Serve with whipped cream. You can serve this pie warm or chilled.
