My husband and Father-in-Law both love coconut custard pie. I wanted to make one for them so I looked through all of the coconut custard pie recipes here at Just A Pinch and kind of "combined" some of them to come up with this delicious pie. The coconut extract gives it just the right "flavor boost" it needs. It was a big hit!

How to Make Coconut Custard Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Place the unbaked pie crust on a cookie sheet. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the eggs until frothy. Mix together the sugar and cornstarch and add to the beaten eggs. Mix well to combine. Add the vanilla extract, coconut extract and salt. Mix well.
  3. In a large microwave safe bowl, combine the half and half and the coconut milk. Cook on HI for 1-2 minutes, or just until scalded.
  4. GRADUALLY add the scalded milk to the egg mixture, mixing briskly as you pour (so you don't scramble the eggs).
  5. Add 3/4 cup of the coconut to the egg mixture and mix well.
  6. Place the cookie sheet with the pie crust in the oven with rack in the middle position. Carefully pour filling into the pie crust. Sprinkle remaining coconut evenly over top. Carefully slide rack back into oven.
  7. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until crust is golden brown and knife inserted comes out clean. (If crust starts to brown too quickly, cover only crust with aluminum foil.
