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.
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 followed some of the advice in previous reviews and used 1 1/2 cups half-n-half and 1 1/2 cups canned coconut milk. I also used the 1/3 cup of cornstarch instead of flour and made my own whipped cream. I also used fresh coconut (from the freezer section) instead of that nasty dried, sweetened stuff in the cake mix aisle. I made the custard in the microwave and it was thick, smooth, creamy, and beautiful in just 5 minutes. I pulled the bowl out after each minute to stir the mixture with a whisk. SO easy and SO good. No need for coconut extract if you use fresh coconut and coconut milk. Thanks for a great recipe!
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. I will definitely make it for Thanksgiving and any other time I can find an excuse to make one. I did as others suggested and used 1-1/2 c.coconut milk and 1-1/2 c.half ‘half & half’instead of 3 cups H&H, 1/3 c. cornstarch instead of flour and I used coconut extract instead of vanilla. I didn’t have enough sugar so I had to use 1/4 c. Splenda but it didn’t affect the taste at all. I also took one reviewers advice and cooked it in the microwave. Do not be afraid to do this! It saved so much time and turned out fabulous. Five minutes in the micro, stirring after every minute – perfect! Lastly, I beg you – please, please, please – do not put cool whip on this wonderful pie. If you are going to go to all the trouble of making a coconut pie from scratch, please take the time to whip up real whipped cream. It is so worth it. You will love this pie.
1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
