This was the first coconut cream pie that I've ever tried, and one of the best ones I've ever tasted. However, I think there was a step missing in the cooking directions. In order to get the filling to come out smooth and get rid of the flour clumps, I mixed the filling ingredients in my stand mixer at medium speed until all the clumps were gone, then transferred the mixture to a pot to cook it. Also, for an elegant touch, I added a split Tahitian vanilla bean to the mixture as it was heating. The vanilla flavor really brought out the flavor of this pie. Lastly, I like a lot of cream on my coconut cream pie and found that 1 cup of whipped topping was not enough. I used an entire 8 oz. package of Extra Creamy Cool Whip and barely covered it. I'd advise using more.
