Toasted Coconut Cream Pie

coconut cream pie recipe

Did you have a fabulous 4th of July? We did. We had a nice relaxing weekend. We stayed inside a lot, due to the heat, but we needed the break. We have been running around like crazy people since we got to Kansas. The Army does a good job of celebrating the 4th. Their fireworks display was great. We were lucky enough to sit outside on our lawn with our neighbors and watch the show. Now, it is late in the evening, and I can hear the neighborhood fireworks still going off. I truly love the 4th of July.

coconut cream pie recipeSo do these little people. You know what else I love? Pie. And feeling all domestic-like when I make one. You know what else make else makes me feel all domestic-like? A cute kitchen apron from Shabby Apple. We will get to that later.

coconut cream pie recipeCoconut Cream Pie is one of the most heavenly creations imaginable. Next to apple pie, it is my favorite pie to eat. If it is on a restaurant menu, I cannot resist it. The thing is, that when coconut cream pie is good, it is so incredibly good. But, when it is not good, it is not worth the calories. There is nothing worse than ordering a piece of pie and expecting a light, coconut filling and getting a watery, vanilla pudding, with a hint of artificial coconut flavoring. My goal was for this pie to taste like real coconut. This pie, uses real coconut milk, and lots of toasted coconut. Lots of coconut real flavor. A shot of Malibu or coconut flavored rum would be incredible in here as well. This pie seems like it would be complicated to make, but really it is very simple. I baked off the crust and started on the filling while it cooled. By the time the crust was finished cooling, the filling was done and waiting in the fridge. I whipped some cream at the last minute, and garnished with toasted coconut. It was a piece of cake. Uh, I mean pie.

  • My favorite pie is the one that is made by someone else, preferably in their home. I am not a baking fan and I really like variety in food. I did however have a very deliciously creamy Key Lime Pie at an Amish restaurant in Sarasota, FL. Best fried chicken too! https://jennlikesit.com/2011/05/best-fried-chicken-ever/

    Thanks for doing this giveaway! I’d love to have a cool apron like this.

  • mmmm looks yummy! i’m the only one in my house that loves coconut! my favorite pie is apple pie. but not just ANY apple pie. Apple pie from Julian California. It’s an old mining town in southern California and in my favorite shoppe up there, there are old ladies baking this in a kitchen. It’s taste is perfection!!! They are known for their pies and they are SERIOUSLY incredible…fresh with a bit of ice cream on top…..HEAVEN!

    • Oh, I’m with you Jane!… I was passing through there last month and popped into the restaurant/shop and those pies were amazing! I only wish I could have tried them all. You are right though, the apple pie there ranked right up there with the apple pie my mom makes on her farm. Amazing! πŸ™‚

    My all time favorite pie, though, is blueberry with vanilla ice cream. And I’d love a cute apron!

  • Oooooh! What a yummy looking pie! Coconut cream is divine- I’ll have to give your recipe a whirl. Living close to the mountains, we have lots of wild berries, so I think my very favorite is huckleberry. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a cup of coffee, and I am one happy camper! Of course, I would love to have a pretty Shabby Apple apron to serve it up in! πŸ™‚

  • Apple pie would have to be my favorite. Something about the changing leaves, scent of cinnamon and warmth of a sweater that makes the whole experience of an apple pie.

    I made a cherry pie yesterday for our 4th celebration with friends. My crust was not nearly as pretty as yours. I may need a few pointers there. Or maybe just a cute apron will do the trick?

  • Oh my goodness. I love pie more than cake so to choose one…but you asked for one. Immediately springing to mind is ‘lemon meringue’ because my grandmother got it into her head about 40 years ago that this was my favorite. She always made it when we visited, even if there were other things on the dessert menu. I didn’t complain & no one else did either.

    I love Shabby Apple, too, & somehow missed seeing the aprons. Adorable as everything they do. Therefore, I have already been a fan of theirs on FB for a longish time. I’ll subscribe to your newsletter but will have to do that & then come back.

  • Oh – this is a hard one. Pies and ice-cream are my two favorite types of desserts. It’s hard to choose one flavor out of each that I like more than another. I love fall flavors of anything – so I’m definitely going with pumpkin & apple. But if I had to choose only one, I’m going to say pumpkin. It’s just so creamy and delectable!

    Reply
  • I realize this post is quite dated, but I made this pie today and am wondering what I did wrong. While it tasted delicious, the custard really wasn’t set all that well. I did everything to a T, except after the custard comes to a boil, it doesn’t specify how long to let it thicken, or what stage it should resemble in thickness…this is the first custard ie I’ve made and wasn’t sure, but from the pudding-like ooze I have, clearly is wasn’t enough.

    Reply
    • It needs to come to a full bubble, and it continues to thicken as it chills. A good test is to dip a wooden spoon into the custard and drag your finger down the back of the spoon, if the custard keeps its shape, it should be thick enough.
