The recipe for this Coconut Whip Cream Pie is so creamy and delicious, they will be asking for a second piece.
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2 1/2 Tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 cups coconut milk
2 large eggs

2 Tablespoons unsalted butter

1 1/2 cups heavy cream
3 Tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Spread the 1 ˝ cups coconut onto a baking sheet and put into the oven at 27degrees F. for 5-10 minutes. Watch very carefully so you do not burn it. Just toast it to golden brown. Set aside and use as garnish.
Coconut Cream Filling
In a heavy bottom sauce pan stir together sugar, cornstarch and salt.
Whisk in coconut milk, eggs and egg yolks.
Turn on heat to low, and whisk constantly for 5 minutes.

Remove from heat and strain. Stir in vanilla, butter and 1 cup of coconut and stir until butter has melted.
Pour immediately into chilled pie shell, let cool on the counter for 15 minutes, then chill for at least 4 hours.
Whipped Cream Topping
Chill a glass or metal bowl in the freezer for 10 minutes.
Remove from freezer and put the whipping cream ingredients into the chilled bowl. Whisk on high speed until medium peaks form, about 1 minute.

coconut to garnish.
