Creamy, delicious, simple and easy...what more could you want...if you are looking for a coconut pie recipe from scratch that you don't have to slave over then this one is for you...betcha can't eat just one piece!

NOTE: The pie in the picture has half (3/4 cup) of the coconut that is in the filling UNTOASTED...you can toast it all or only half for the topping...whichever you prefer.

How to Make Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Step-by-Step

  • 1To toast the coconut heat oven to 350; put coconut on non stick pan and bake 5-7 minutes stirring every couple minutes. I do this while baking pie shell.
  • 2Combine half and half, eggs, sugar, flour, and salt. Bring to boil over low heat, stirring constantly. Cook for approximately 30 min.Or until you reach desired thickness. Remove from heat.
  • 3Remove from heat and add 3/4 c. of the coconut and vanilla. Pour into baked pie shell and chill 2-4 hours.
  • 4Top with whipped topping and remaining coconut.Serve. Refrigerate any remaining but there probably won't be ;-)
