Double Coconut Cream Pie
Comfort food at it's best!
This recipe is a favorite of mine. I hope you like it too!
I have many different versions of coconut cream pie, BUT this is the most requested!
If you like banana cream pie, substitute sliced banana's over the cooled chocolate
and continue with the recipe, skipping the coconut altogether or not, it's up to you, BUT it is GOOOOOD!

- sweetened flaked coconut plus more for toasting

- 1/2 c
- 1/4 c

I like to use a clear pyrex dish so that I can keep an eye on the coconut crust so that it doesn't burn.
Place 3 cups coconut in a bowl. Melt 5 tbsp. butter and stir into the coconut until moistened. Press into bottom and up the sides of pie plate. Bake until deep golden brown. About 25-30 minutes.
Check often, if edges are browning quicker than the bottom cover edges with strips of foil or a crust protecter.
Whisk eggs,sugar,flour and vanilla until smooth.
30 minutes before serving, Beat cream until stiff peaks form. Spread over custard and chill. Garnish with toasted coconut before serving.
