Coconut Cream Pie Deluxe

This is a recipe that I use when I make a coconut creme pie but I converted it to a 13x9. It is very rich but you just want to keep eating it. The nutty crust is the real stand-out in this recipe along with the creamy coconut pie filling. This is achieved by using the half and half instead of milk.
