Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2013
I think overall the idea is great. I did use a few alterations that the other reviewers suggested. I only used sweetened, toasted Coconut for the top (which was real whipped cream made from Heavy Cream, Vanilla Extract and Confectioners Sugar), natural unsweetened Coconut for the inside, 3 egg yolks instead of the 2 eggs, 1/3c cornstarch instead of flour, 1 can cream of Coconut (about 1 1/2 cups), and 1 1/2 cups half & half. I also used the microwave suggestion, which was 8 minutes in the microwave, whisking after each minute. The Coconut flavor and consistency were great. For me though, it was WAY too sweet. I think next time I will try it with only 1/2cup of sugar instead of 3/4cup. I will definitely make this again!
