Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a small bowl, combine flour, coconut and brown sugar; cut in butter until crumbly ( I do this in my food processor).
Press into a 9 inch square baking pan coated with cooking spray.

Bake at 400 for 7 - 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.

In a small saucepan, combine flour, sugar and salt. Stir in milk until smooth. Cook and stir over medium - high heat until thick and bubbly. Reduce heat; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from heat.
3
Stir a small amount of hot filling into eggs; return all to pan; stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from heat
4
Gently stir in coconut and extract. Pour over crust. Refrigerate until set. Top with pie filling. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before cutting.

Enjoy!
