A delicious recipe for Coconut Cream Pie that has an amazing coconut pudding layer, cool whip layer and topped with toasted coconut shreds. { lilluna.com }

My husband LOVES Pie! And I mean LOVES! He craves it all the time and secretly hopes I make it for every special occasion and party. And I like pie, but I’m more of a cake and bars girl, so my first thought is never to make pie. You see, this makes my husband pretty sad. He likes the other stuff I make, but if he ever gets to pick dessert, it’s always pie. I try to be nice and make it for his birthday, but fortunately my mom and his mom are nicer and make it on a more regular basis. My mom, in fact, has been making pies for as long as I can remember because my dad loves them too. You can imagine how happy the hubby he was when he came into the family knowing my mom loved to make them too, especially one of his favs – Coconut Cream Pie!

She recently made a new version of Coconut Cream Pie, and it was a hit with all the men in the family.  We wanted to make sure we shared it with all of you in case you loved this pie as well. It’s great any time of year, but my family loves to make it for Thanksgiving (along with all the other classic pie recipes).

    This pie looks delicious, Kellyn! I love coconut, but my husband hates it so I never get to make coconut desserts. I may just have to find an excuse when he’s not around to make this pie, though.

      Let me know if you give it a try. My hubby LOVES coconut so he LOVES this pie, but I’m more of a chocolate person so he loves it when I cave and make his favorite. 🙂

    Melissa

    Oh my gosh, I hate making pies, but I might just have to make this anyway! (It’s the darn crust that always gets me!) I love how big and fluffy this pie is. It looks amazing!

      Lil' Luna

      Thank you, Melissa!! If you love Coconut I can guarantee you’ll love this. Let me know if you give it a try. 🙂

    Leslie

    I made this pie today. It is fantastic, and it’s not fussy to make. I could eat one of these pies every day. Thank you so much for sharing this delicious recipe.

      Lil' Luna

      Thanks for stopping by, Leslie. I’m glad it was a hit!! I think I’ll be making it soon for Father’s Day since it’s one of the hubby’s FAVS! 😉

    Linda

    May I ask if I can make a Meringue topping instead of Whipped Cream. I know I would have too put the pie in the oven too brown the tips of the egg whites but I just love it that way.

    The cake looks so delicious, the layer cake is attractive. Thanks for sharing this dessert.

    I have made this in the past and my family LOVES it! It’s easy and so good. Can you substitute 1% milk for the whole milk? Or does it need to be whole milk?

      Lil' Luna

      Thank you!! I haven’t tried, but I think it would be fine. I know some recipes work only with the certain milk, but it’s hard to know when it would or wouldn’t. I wish I knew for sure!

    Wilson

    Can you substitute coconut milk for some of the whole milk?

      Kristyn Merkley

      I personally haven’t tried, so I’m not sure. I’m sorry I wish I knew how it would turn out. I bet it would be ok.

    Lindy

    Your recipe tastes wonderful, I really had a issue at Thanksgiving with one I got from a family member. I promised myself I would find a coconut pie recipe to make for Christmas. From know on this is my go to recipe.
