This was a wonderful coconut cream pie, but I did take some advice from other reviewers. First of all, I used a double boiler over medium heat & stirred with a whisk (it actually does make a big difference in smoothness) & it thickened nicely & didn't burn. I made two pies, both with 2 cups half & half & 1 cup 2% milk, & that was definitely the right decision. But for one pie I used 1/4 cup flour & 1/4 cup cornstarch, & it was pretty good still, but you could definitely taste raw flour. I can't even imagine using just 1/2 cup of flour. For the second pie I used 1/3 cup cornstarch--no flour at all, & it was SOOOO MUCH BETTER. I also used coconut extract instead of vanilla, just to get more of a coconut-y flavor. And yes--use deep dish pie shells. This is a very good recipe, but take my advice & LEAVE OUT THE FLOUR!!! You'll be glad you did.
