What is Buko Pie (Coconut Pie)?

This is a traditional delicacy of Filipinos. My son loves this much, especially when it is cold. Buko pie is a source of calcium and iron, and very high in calories and protein.

    Oh my, it looks yummy! I bet it’s pretty challenging to create buko pies kasi dapat talaga marunong ka pumili ng buko in the first place diba. The fresher the buko is, the yummier it will be. You made it look simple though. Parang ang sarap i-try using your recipe hihi

    This is really interesting to make. My son loves buko pie so we usually just buy lang to where it’s available. Will try to prepare this at home.

    I’ve been bitten by the baking bug lately and seeing how easy to make this one looks, makes me want to try it. I don’t have an oven yet though and will be using a turbo broiler. Do you think I need to adjust the temperature pa?

    I have been craving for buko pie lately. Though I always get to eat these out every time I travel out to Cebu but you can’t blame me craving for it whenever I am home. It’s something that can’t be found here most of the time. Good thing I was able to come across your site. I’ll definitely give your recipe a try!
