Quilting Heidi Posted September 7, 2009 Report Share Posted September 7, 2009 I made a Bannana Cream Pie and a Coconut Cream Pie and the Coconut Cream Pie won. I thought I'd share the recipe. 1 c. sugar 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 1/4 tsp salt 3 cups milk 4 egg yolks, 3 TBS butter 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla 1 cup flaked coconut 1 9" pie shell baked Directions: 1. In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, flour, and salt over a medium heat; gradually stir in milk. Cook and stir over medium heat until the mixture is thick and bubbly. (I used a whisk for this). Reduce heat to low and cook 2 minutes more, remove pan from heat. 2. In separate bowl, light beat egg yolks. Gradually stir in 1 cup of hot mixture into the yolks. Return the egg mixture to the saucepan and bring the entire mixture to a gentle boil. Cook and stir 2 additional minutes. Remove from heat. 3. Stir in butter, vanilla and coconut into hot mixture. Pour the hot filling into the baked pie crust. Cool. Cover and chill to store the pie. I also added coolwhip to the top and then topped off with toasted coconut. I made 1 1/2 batches so that the pie was really full. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
