How to Make Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. To 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.
  2. Combine 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.
  3. Remove from heat and add 3/4 c. of the coconut and vanilla. Pour into baked pie shell and chill 2-4 hours.
  4. Top with whipped topping and remaining coconut.Serve. Refrigerate any remaining but there probably won't be ;-)
