A couple days before the 4th of July my neighbor asked me to make two coconut cream pies for his family picnic on the 4th. It's his favorite pie. I've never made coconut cream pie so I looked for a recipe.  I found the recipe I wanted to make on a blog called... Add A Pinch




Why did I decide on this recipe?   There was coconut milk and shredded coconut in the filling, and toasted coconut on the pie.  And...whipped cream for a topping.  The whipped cream was the clencher  for me.  I made the pies and took them over to our neighbor the night before the 4th.  We were also invited to the party, but didn't get there till ...all but 2 slices let of two pies later.  Everyone LOVED it!  They praised this pie as the best pie they ever ate.  I was able to salvage a sliver to taste it.  That wasn't enough, I needed my OWN.   Even in this heat I wanted to make this pie!  Instead of buying half and half and whipping cream I made my own half and half with milk and whipping cream.  I made 2 cups of half and half by combining 1 1/2  cups milk with 1/2 cup of cream.  Then I measured out the 1 1/2 cups of half and half I needed and saved the extra 1/2 cup for coffee or tea.  It worked perfectly. I also toasted my coconut until it was a golden brown, I wanted the pie to have another small layer of coconut flavor slightly different than the creamy layer of coconut.  I refrigerated my filling longer than 40 minutes.  It was about 2 hrs before I put the whipped cream on it.


This pie is absolute coconut cream pie perfection.  It starts with the first bite, light and creamy with a wonderful coconut flavor, thanks to the coconut milk.  It's very very more-ish.    You don't have to look any farther than this recipe for the Best Homemade Coconut Cream Pie EVER!   Enjoy!

Well, I believe you! I made a coconut cream pie and never blogged it. It tasted good, but the filling never set up. I was bummed. As soon as I can stand up long enough to bake, again, I'm making this pie-- and I'll let you know. Sounds fantastic!

coconut cream pie is one of my all-time favorites, and this one sounds terrific. i'm so glad you took the whipped cream route instead of meringue--what a way to spoil a delicious pie!

I just made this pie last night. It really is yummy! I used a different recipe for the crust though (the one I used included coconut in the crust- SO DELICIOUS!!! My boyfriend LOVED the crust!). As for the filling, the only thing I'm going to change next time is to pulse the coconut in a food processor before adding it to the custard because it was a little too "stringy." Overall this was great for my first attempt!!!
