How To Make Buko Pie

Buko Pie Recipe #1


2 cups buko meat
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup coconut water
1/2 1/2 cup evaporated milk (or fresh milk)
1/2 cup starch

Pour directly the uncooked mixture into the pastry-lined pan, top with the second crust, brush with eggwash, bake at 400 deg F for 15 minutes then a further 45 minutes at 325 deg F.

Buko Recipe #2


2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
2/3 cup shortening
1 piece eggyolk
1 tsp. vinegar
1/4 cup ice water

4 cups coconut meat
1 cup coconut water
1 300 ml. can Sweetened Condensed Milk
2/3 cup cornstarch


1. Blend flour and salt in a bowl. Cut in shortening using two knives or a pastry cutter. Combine yolk, vinegar and water; slowly add the liquid to the flour mixing until dough can be handled.

2. Divide dough into 2 parts with one part slightly bigger than the other. Roll bigger dough to about 2 inches larger than a 16-inch pie plate. Fit dough into a pie plate, letting sides hang. Roll out remaining dough for the crust. Set aside.

3. Combine filling ingredients in a thick saucepan. Cook stirring constantly until thickened. Cool then pour into prepared crust. Cover with top crust; flute or crimp edges together to seal. Bake for 1 hr. at 425 degrees F.
