Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie
This was a great recipe !!!! This was the very first time I ever made a coconut creme pie. Guess what, first time I ever ate some too.... YUMMMM!!!! I followed advice of others and made some substitutions. Still giving 5 stars though .I skipped half and half and used cocunut milk 1/2 cup and coconut water 1/2 cup. I also used more coconut (1-1/2 cups). I also used cornstarch. It doesn't get lumpy with this. I used 2 whole eggs plus 1 yolk. I also used 2 teaspoons of vanilla. I tried the recipe cooking on top of the stove and no matter how much I strred it still stuck to the pan and I was afraid the taste would go through the pie (it was still good) I SERIUSLY recommend using the microwave skip stove completely. I put all ingredients in the bowl and mic'd for 2 minutes a pop then stirred after ever 2 minutes. Because I was paranoid I cooked for 10 minutes. 8 is probably fine just keep strring. When done go right to the pie shells because if you cooked it right it will begin to set in the bowl and you don't want that. Iwill definitely make again. I had a bake sale at church and after one sample they wanted a whole pie ! AWESOME !!! One sure thing to do is make your own whipped cream. It Is The Best!!! I am so impressed.
