    Spaghetti Squash Pie (Mock Coconut Pie)

    I mentioned this in another forum and someone asked that it be posted. I love different and unique recipes and this pie fits that bill. We took it to a family gathering and only my husband and daughters knew it wasn't real coconut. Needless to say, I didn't bring home any leftovers.

    Spaghetti Squash Pie
    (Mock Coconut Pie)

    1 c white sugar
    3 eggs
    1/4 c butter, melted
    1 T fresh lemon juice
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    1/2 tsp coconut extract
    3 c cooked, shredded spaghetti squash, chopped to resemble coconut
    1 9-inch pie shell, unbaked
    2 c whipped cream

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat the sugar & eggs in a mixing bowl until light and foamy. Add the butter, lemon juice, vanilla, & coconut extract, and beat until well blended. Stir in the spaghetti squash. Pour into the prepared pie crust. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Top with whipped cream before serving.

    Sounds very tasty. I love spaghetti squash, but have never used it in a dessert. I will have to try it.
