This is an amazing recipe for Coconut Cream Pie!  There is coconut all throughout this pie!  It’s very easy to make from scratch! Coconut lovers all across the country are swooning over this recipe! This pie is the most perfect summer dessert, you must try it!

To toast the coconut, place it in a non-stick pan over medium low heat.  Stir every few minutes until the coconut becomes lightly toasted.  Remove and let cool.  The only coconut that needs to be toasted is the coconut for the topping.  To pipe the whipped cream, I placed it in a Ziploc bag and snipped the corner off.  I just squeezed large spots all over the top until it was covered.

  1. I have been living with AIDS for 25 years. Wondering if you had some home cooked, easy recipes for one or to make bulk and freeze.? Living on 189 in Food stamps and really need to make it go farther, I only get to the store once a month. Can you give me some suggestions? Please, and fruits and vegetables are more expensive.
    Thanks so much for listening if you do?

  7. I love coconut pie! Thanks for linking up with What’s Cookin’ Wednesday!

  8. When I first made this pie, I had put Creme Of Coconut (Coco Lopez) on my grocery list instead of coconut milk. I was making the pie the other night and realized for the first time, the recipe said coconut milk. Ooops…….oh well. I have used the Creme Of Coconut every time I have made this pie and the pie is wonderful! I’m going to keep on using it:)
    I was wondering if you or anybody else had ever made it using the Creme of Coconut instead of the coconut milk?

  9. Hi, I want to do this recipe but I want to reduce the amount of sugar, what can I use instead?
