Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Ingredients (9" Pie)
1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
3 cups half-and-half
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract...

1 (9 inch) pie shell, baked
1 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed
{or the "Real Stuff", which I prefer, whipped with 1 Tablespoon Sugar and 1 teaspoon Vanilla}

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread the coconut on a baking sheet and bake it, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 5 minutes. In a medium saucepan, combine the half-and-half, eggs, sugar, flour and salt and mix well. Bring to a boil over low heat, stirring constantly. Remove the pan from the heat, and stir in 3/4 cup of the toasted coconut and the vanilla extract. Reserve the remaining coconut to top the pie. Pour the filling into the pie shell and chill until firm, about 4 hours. Top with whipped topping and with the reserved coconut.

  1. OOOH Does that ever look scrumptious! My husband loves coconut cream pie, so I believe I will give this one a try.
    I love coconut, but it does not like me. :(

    I trust you are having a beautiful and blessed day, dear Jan.
    Joy! Debbie
