My good friend & co-worker, Colleen, used to bring this pie to our company pot-lucks. It disappeared like new fallen snow every time, and sometimes caused a scuffle or two...it is that good!! Before she retired she shared the recipe with a few of us. My husband can eat the whole thing in 1 night! On top of that, it is easier than most of the coconut custard pie recipes, so it is a win/win!!

How To Make
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix eggs and sugar well with hand mixer.
Dissolve cornstarch in 1/4 cup of the half and half; add back to remaining half and half, and stir until well combined.
Add half and half mixture slowly to the egg/sugar mix, while continuing to beat on low speed; add salt. Stir in the melted butter by hand. Add vanilla and coconut.
Pour into pie crust; bake for 45-60 minutes, depending on your oven.
Cover edges of pie crust with foil if browning too quickly. Top of pie should be a golden color.
