Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie


1 cup of sweetened coconut flakes

3 cups half and half

2 eggs, shakes

3/4 cup white sugar

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 (9-inch) cake shell, baked

1 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Spread the coconut on a baking sheet and bake, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 5 minutes.

In a medium saucepan, combine half and half, the eggs, sugar, flour and salt and mix well. Bring to a simmer, stirring constantly. Remove pan from heat and add 3/4 cup toasted coconut and vanilla extract. Set aside remaining coconut to cover cake.

Pour the filling into the pie shell and cool until firm, about 4 hours.

Cover with the whipped topping and reserved coconut.
