Coconut Cream Pie
This is my third consecutive pie recipe. A pie is one of the most comforting desserts. To put an end to 2020, we all can use a little comfort in our lives.
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
2 cup milk
4 egg yolks
1 whole egg
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup toasted coconut, plus more for garnish
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 9-inch pie crust, baked according to package directions.
Fresh whipped cream for topping
Combine sugar and cornstarch in a heavy saucepan. Whisk together the milk, egg yolks and whole egg. Gradually whisk egg mixture into sugar mixture; bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking constantly. Boil 1 minute; remove from heat.
Stir in butter, 1 cup coconut, and vanilla. Cover with plastic wrap, placing plastic wrap directly on filling in pan; let stand for 30 minutes.
Spoon custard mixture into prepared pie crust; cover and chill 30 minutes or until set. Top with whipped cream and coconut.
