My dad and I love coconut cream pie so I tried this one out - I give this recipe 5 stars with the following changes: took the advice of others on some of the changes, and did a little modifying of my own :) Ingredients used: 1/3 c of coconut for the topping (toasted), and 1 & 3/4 c coconut for the filling (untoasted), 1 & 1/2 c heavy cream, 1 & 1/2 c coconut milk (used heavy cream & coconut milk instead of half & half), 2 eggs beaten, 3/4 c white sugar, 1/3 c cornstarch (instead of flour), 1/4 tsp salt, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 - 9in, pie shell, baked.
For the whipped topping, used 1 pint of heavy whipping cream, 3 tbsp powdered sugar, and 1 tsp vanilla - mix with mixer until peaks form (about 5 minutes). Sprinkle with the 1/3 c toasted coconut. Definitely worth making the homemade whipped topping! Use this recipe all the time.
