Pastry Cream

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2012
Ive worked as a pastry chef and been to culinary school.... this is the recipe I tried when at a friends on vacation. She wanted to buy a coconut cream pie from the frozen section of the grocery store and I just couldnt fathom that, so I told her Id make her the best one she'd ever eat. As it turns out its almost exactly the same recipe I first learned years ago. The only thing I might add to directions is after it thickens and comes to a low boil. Reduce heat to med. and beat with wisk constantly for 2-3 min. this will reduce the starchiness and give it a velvety smoothness. Its not overly sweet, so it lends itself to all kinds of variations. I added half a can of CocoLopez and 1 cup of Bakers Angel Flake coconut to a double batch. Topped with whipped cream, more coconut and finely chopped pecans. Excellent!!
