Coconut Cream Pie

Happy Labor Day, friends and neighbors!  I hope you all enjoyed your day off as much as I did!  I got to spend some time cooking today.  And y’all know I love that more than breathing!  So it was a good day. 

I decided to try my hand at making a Coconut Cream Pie today because my SIL wanted one.  I went in search of a recipe on the internet because nobody in my family ever made Coconut Cream Pies.  So I had to Google to come up with something.  I combined about 3 recipes to come up with what I felt like would be good.  And good it was!  My SIL raved over that pie!

So ya wanna make some pie with me?  It was fairly easy.  It just required some patience, which ain’t really my strong suit.  But I managed!

Coconut Cream Pie

*  1 bottle/can cream of coconut

*  enough Half and Half to amount to 3 cups of liquid

*  1/2 cup flour

*  2 eggs + 2 egg yolks

*  1 cup sugar

*  2 Tbsp. coconut extract

*  1 tsp. vanilla extract

*  1 small bag shredded coconut

Mix cream of coconut and half and half in a large saucepan.  Add sugar, eggs, yolks, and sugar.  Cook over medium low heat until very thick like pudding.  Pour into a pre-baked pie shell.  Top with meringue and bake just until meringue begins to brown slightly. 

Meringue

*  4 egg whites

*  4 Tbsp. sugar

*  1/4 tsp. cream of tartar

*  1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

Whip until firm peaks form. 

And this is what you’ll end up with:

 

 

 

YUM!  I’m not a fan of coconut so much, but it sure was good!  It’s definitely something I’d make again!  If you like Coconut Cream Pie, I think you’ll love this one!  Give it a try!  Enjoy!
