THANK YOU, Honeybit, for posting the directions for the pie.  I thought I was going nuts....I kept searching for the ingredients/directions and couldn't see a thing.  I kept clicking on the pic even thinking it would take me somewhere!  LOL 

 

Thanks LoLa for the original post....looks delish!  I also appreciate the help you gave on pie crust baking!!!

Old-Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Serves 8 - Makes 1 9-inch pie

 

Prep 20 min    Cook 30 min    Ready 50 min

 

1 cup sweetened flaked coconut

3 cup half-and-half

2 eggs, beaten

3⁄4 cup white sugar

1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour

1⁄4 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 (9 inch) pie shell, baked

1 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed (or your own homemade whipped cream)

 

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


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


In a medium saucepan, combine the half-and-half, eggs, sugar, flour and salt and mix well. Bring to a boil over low heat, stirring constantly. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in 3/4 cup of the toasted coconut and the vanilla extract. Reserve the remaining coconut to top the pie.


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


Top with whipped topping and with the reserved coconut.

 

(You can also find the same on Allrecipes.com, posted by Carol H.  There are some great sounding comments about using coconut milk, coconut cream, or cornstarch instead of the flour -- too long to copy them here. --HB)


thank you, I also was going crazy looking for the recipe
