Coconut Cream Pie

When you think of a diner, what do you think of? Pie, of course! My favorite pie is coconut cream pie. I mean, pecan pie. Oh, and I love pumpkin pie. Blueberry cream pie is good too. Ok, so maybe I can't pick a favorite; but this coconut cream pie is delicious!

2 eggs
3 cups half & half
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 7 oz. package coconut flake, toasted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 9 inch pie shell, pre-baked
1 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed

  1. Combine eggs, half & half, sugar, flour, and salt in a medium sized saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir with a whisk constantly (this is important so nothing sticks to the bottom and burns). After all ingredients are combined and sauce thickens a little bit (right after boiling), remove from hear and add 3/4 of toasted coconut.
  2. Pour sauce into pre-baked pie shell and chill for 1-2 hours.
  3. Top with whipped cream and remaining toasted coconut
  4. Dig in!
