Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2014
Oh my goodness, is this an amazing pie. You know it's good when there is none leftover! My Father-In-Law is a Coconut Cream Pie connoisseur and he had two slices! I made this with the coconut crust listed elsewhere and it was great. My changes are that I (accidentally) purchased grated coconut instead of flaked, and that worked fine. I did all unsweetened coconut and it made for a tasty and refreshing pie rather than too sweet. I did as other reviewers suggested and did half coconut milk and half 1/2 & 1/2. Then I did three egg yolks and a 1/3 cup cornstarch (also mentioned elsewhere). Finally, I used my microwave like someone else said and it was awesome. It ended up taking my little 700 watt microwave 7 or 8 minutes to get the right consistency (stirring every minute). And last piece of advice, DO NOT use purchased whip cream. Get out your whippers and just make it. This pie deserves fresh whip cream.

Coconut Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2014
This was great! I accidentally purchased grated coconut and it still worked fine. I got unsweetened coconut but added a teaspoon of vanilla. Then I baked it as instructed. I combined it with the really popular Coconut Cream Pie on this site and it was delicious!
