Old Fashioned Coconut Pie


What a wonderful coconut cream pie. I tested this recipe out tonight because my girlfriend wants one for her birthday. If this didn’t work out, I was going to head to Bob Evans to get her pie since, while I find their food lacking, they do a fantastic coconut pie

I made it three times. First was as the recipe states, second was with 1 c. coconut milk and 2 c. half and half. Then the third time I did it, it came out the best! I used 1 whole can coconut cream, then enough half and half to make it all up to three cups. I used three egg yolks instead of 2 eggs. I used a whole package of the frozen coconut in the pie, and then flaked, sweetened (toasted) coconut on top. I also used 1/2 c. corn starch in place of the flour. My family raved about this and it is going in my tried and true recipe book!!

If you’re searching for a perfect coconut cream pie recipe, end your search with this one! But, make the following changes: I used 1 1/2 cups coconut milk (makes all the difference) and 1 1/2 cups heavy cream (I didn’t have half-n-half).

Also, eliminated the flour and used 1/3 cup corn starch. I turned up the heat on the stove between low and medium, and only took about 20 minutes or so to thicken. I did not toast the coconut that went inside the pie, but did toast the coconut on top. Also, made homemade whipped cream (carton whipping cream, 2 tbls. confectioners sugar, 1 teas. vanilla). Very nice texture. Firmness is just right.

Wow. This is to-die-for. Based on other reviews I made the following changes: 1 1/2 cups coconut milk, 1 1/2 cups half-and-half, used cornstarch instead, subbed defrosted, unsweetened, coconut flakes, and whipped my own cream and added a little coconut extract and powdered sugar to it.

My family ooh-ed and ahh-ed over this pie.Today is my second time making this pie. I noticed that previous pie never quite firmed up as much as I would’ve liked. I added 1 extra yolk and just shy of 1/2 cup cornstarch in the custard. Worked like a charm!

This pie was amazing! I made this yesterday for my brother’s 25th wedding anniversary and my son, who at first turned his nose up at it (coconut-yuck!), asked me to make another one as soon as we got home.
