This is my first time making coconut cream pie. I did a couple of things different from the recipe based on what I figured would suit our preferences. I used 2 cups coconut milk, and made 1 cup half and half substitute (none on hand) by combining 1 1/2 T. melted butter and enough milk to make a full cup. I also subbed 1/3 cup cornstarch for the flour. Everything else was the same. I cooked it in the microwave (can't remember exactly how long, but it was around 8 minutes), stirred every minute with a whisk, and let it cool for about 10 or 15 minutes after stirring in the coconut and vanilla, stirring every few minutes to help speed cooling before putting it in the crust. I also made homemade whipped topping, another first for me and I was pleased with how easy it was to make. The only thing wrong with the pie was that I didn't put quite enough sugar in the whipped topping...my mistake! Great pie, I will definitely make this again!
