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.

MY OTHER RECIPES

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.

She recently made a new version of Coconut Cream Pie (one of the hubby’s all-time favorites!) It was a hit with the family, and she wanted to make sure she shared it with all of you too in case you love Coconut Cream Pie just as much as they do. 😀

For all you coconut lovers, here’s the recipe:

Coconut Cream Pie
 
Serves: 8 slices
Ingredients
  • Prepared pie crust of your choice
Coconut Pudding:
  • 2⅔ cups whole milk
  • 1 egg
  • ⅔ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1⅓ cups sweetened, flake coconut
Whipped Topping:
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 TB granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup coconut
Instructions
Pudding:
  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk milk and egg until completely incorporated. Add your sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Cooking over medium heat, whisk frequently until thickened. Remove saucepan from heat and stir in vanilla then coconut. Pour into your cooled crust (we used Marie Calendar's store bought crust that you bake). Place in refrigerator until chilled, a few hours.
Whipped Topping:
  1. Whip together your cream, sugar, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Spread on top of chilled pie.
  2. Spread your coconut on a cookie sheet or pan. Toast at 350 for about 2-4 minutes, until lightly golden. Sprinkle on top of your pie and eat up!

Carrie @ Kenarry: Ideas for the Home

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.

    Lil' Luna

    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.

Jessica

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!
