Coconut Cream Pie

Coconut Cream Pie is another of the pies I remember from a child. I like coconut almost as much as I like chocolate. This is Homemade Coconut Cream Pie and I love them. This has a rich taste and is a delight.   

Coconut Cream Pie

Crust for: Coconut Cream Pie

  • 12 – 14 graham crackers (Approx 1 1/2 cups)
  • 5 tablespoons butter, melted

Filling for:Coconut Cream Pie

  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1/2 Cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 2 cups shredded coconut, plus about ΒΌ cup more for sprinkling
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Topping for: Coconut Cream Pie

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 2 tablespoons sugar

Directions for: Coconut Cream Pie

  1. For the crust: Crush or grind the graham crackers. Add the melted butter to the crackers. Once mixed, press the mixture into a 9-inch pie pan with back of a spoon. Make sure the crust is even throughout. Place the crust in the refrigerator.
  2. For the filling: Bring the milk, flour, sugar, salt and beaten eggs to a boil on low to medium heat, stirring occasionally. Once the mixture starts boiling, remove from the heat; the consistency should be thick.
  3. Add the coconut and the vanilla and blend together. Then pour in the chilled pie crust. Place the pie in the refrigerator, 10 to 20 minutes.
  4. For the topping: Whip the cream until the consistency is thick. Add the coconut and sugar. Put the mixture over the chilled filling and then sprinkle extra coconut on top!
  5. Chill for at least 2 hours.
