SHF # 16 Coconut Cream Pie( CI)




This month's edition is hosted by Spittoon and the theme is dairy. If you're been reading for a while, you'll know that Robin loves peanut butter. Well, I love coconut as much as she loves peanut butter. This is my favorite coconut cream pie and of course, its from Cook's Illustrated. This pie never fails me and its super easy to make.

The crust consists of animal crackers, unsweeted coconut and butter. The filling is whole MILK, unsweetened coconut, coconut MILK, sugar and corn starch. First you make a classic custard that you finish with a bit of butter and some vanilla extract. I always add a smidge of coconut extract to boost the coconut flavor.

The crust is baked for 15 min, then cooled, then the filling is spooned in. Once that is nicely chilled, you top with freshly whipped CREAM.

Pure coconutty heaven.
