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.


Enjoy!!!
