Murder Mystery Food--St. Patricks Day Coconut Green Pie

Hey Foodies,  It's back murder mystery food.  The place where we cook those recipes found in our favorite murder mysteries.  Today we are revisiting the Sugar Cookie murder mystery by Joanne Fluke.  Can you tell we love this author.  If you haven't checked this book out you really need too.  Besides a lovely Christmas time murder mystery it has over a dozen recipes in it.  You'll find links to some of the others we've cooked in the past.  For now, we are cooking for St. Patricks Day.  This is a really easy recipe no mixing bowls were harmed in the making of this pie.  No bowls are needed just your blender and pie pan.  Don't you just love it. So lets get cooking.  Here's what you'll need.

In the blender add  note: do not attempt in bullet blender not big enough
1 1/2 cups water
one can sweetened condensed milk (14 oz)
1/2 Bisquick (I used jiffy baking mix)
3 eggs
1/4 cup butter melted
2 teaspoons vanilla
3-4 drops of green food coloring (I used the green pastel and you can't tell but this is optional)

Blend on low for 3 minutes

Pre-treat your pie pan with cooking spray.  Pour contents of blender into pie pan.  What really neat about this recipe your going to let it sit. The baking mix forms the crust while its sitting on the counter at room temperature.

Almost forgot this step as you'll see in the pictures sprinkle a cup of coconut flakes on top of pie.

Here comes the fun part put the pie on a cookie sheet so you don't spill then place in oven at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes.  Test for doneness using knife with comes out clean pie is done.

Cool on a wire rack.

You can serve this warm or room temperature.  Personally I like it cold.  Remember food safety when not eating put it back in the fridge.  Bon Appetite and enjoy.

                                             This is where I almost forgot the coconut.                                                

Here's the links to the Joanne Fluke recipes.
