The addition of coconut makes it deliciously smooth and fluffy with lots of coconut flavor. And I just love the top sweetened whipped cream add-on. Although I love a good meringue, I think the coconut flavors simply go so well with the cream.


Putting a little flaked coconut on top gives the pie a great textured contrast if you have a few extra minutes to toast some up, but without it, it’s still completely delicious.

It is a fairly old-fashioned recipe for this classic pie based on a flour-thickened, pudding-like filling of custard pie. I hate variants of this recipe that get thickened with starch from the corn. The texture is just not perfect.

A good cream pie with coconut should be velvety and moist, not like any jelly at all. This recipe is doing it right, and the effort is well worth the results. Try this recipe for Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie, and enjoy it with your family and friends.

Ingredients:

1 cup sweetened flaked coconut

3 cups half-and-half

(2) large eggs, beaten

¾ cup white sugar

½ cup all-purpose flour

¼ tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 (9 inches) pie shell, baked

1 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed

Directions:

Start by preheating the oven at about 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Spread the coconut on a baking sheet and bake it until golden brown for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

In a medium saucepan, add and combine the half-and-half, eggs, sugar, flour, and salt and mix well. Boil over low heat, stirring constantly. Cook for 2 minutes more, stirring constantly. Take the pan off the heat, and stir in 3/4 c of the toasted coconut and the vanilla extract. Set aside the remaining coconut to top the pie.

Add and pour filling into the pie shell and chill until firm for 4 hours.

Add whipped topping and with the reserved coconut on top.

Haven’t you ever wanted to change the tone of something negative and turn it into something more positive? I know I have. All it takes is a little change to make even the most negative of circumstances something a little more uplifting. As summer draws near, I wish I could change the tone of my jiggly thighs and bum and turn them into something a little more firm and attractive. The new Crocs Tone line can help do just that.

I know, you hear the word Crocs and immediately think of big bulky albeit comfy clogs. That’s what I thought too, but you know what? Crocs have come a long way in recent years and have developed a variety of different styles that have evolved the brand into a fashionable and comfy line that can meet the needs of anyone. From boots to stylish flats and sandals, the choices are endless. The newest Crocs Tone easily replace those ridiculous thick soled toning sneakers from other brands with four different sleek and stylish options.
