Coconut Cream Pie


This recipe was written out on a recipe card in my Jr. High handwriting. I have been cutting out or copying down recipes for YEARS! I do not know its original source.

3 c. half & half
2 eggs
3/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. flour
1/4 t. salt
2 c. toasted coconut, divided
1 t. vanilla

1 c. whipping cream
2 T.sugar

One baked pie crust

Spread coconut on an ungreased cookie sheet, and bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes, until golden brown. Stir once during baking.

In a medium saucepan, combine half & half,eggs, sugar, flour and salt.
Stir over low heat, and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in 1 c. coconut and vanilla. Pour into pie shell. Chill at least 2 hours. Beat whipping cream and two T. sugar, and spread over pie. Top with remaining cup of toasted coconut.

Palma I think this looks so yummy. I've been searching your blog for a dessert to bring as my contribution to Easter Brunch. I think it might be this one! I know I can always count on your blog for the perfect recipe. Thank you.

Coconut pie is one of my favorites, and I haven't made one in years. Yours looks especially good.

This looks great. I love cream pies. Sounds like the perfect dessert for spring.

Drooling here! I absolutely LOVE coconut. This looks like a great recipe. It would be much to dangerous for me to make though. I would eat the entire pie in one sitting!

Have you ever tried the coconut yogurt in Italy? I think it is the brand that starts with an M in the blue and white yogurt cups. Think it is a German brand.


I will keep an eye out for that yogurt!


OMG -- Palma, I think you've crossed the line into food porn! That looks incredible.

I've also tried the coconut yogurt in Italy that Girasoli mentions -- it's very tasty.

This is one of the most favorite of pies for me! This and my other favorite, Flapper Pie, from the back of the graham wafer box.
I love the look of this pie...it's going to be served at my next book club meeting! One of each...coconut creme and Flapper. That should send everyone skyward on a good sugar high!!
