How to make Coconut Cream Pie

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees.

Step 2: On a baking sheet, spread the coconut. Place in the preheated oven for about 5 minutes until golden brown. Take the baking sheet every often to stir.

Step 3: Place the sugar, half-and-half, eggs, flour, and salt in a saucepan. Mix well until combined. Let the mixture boil, then simmer for about 2 minutes over low heat, stirring often. When done, take the pan off the heat.

Step 4: Into the extract, add around ¾ cup of the toasted coconut. Set the rest aside for the pie topper.

Step 5: Into the pie shell, place the filling. Chill in the fridge for about 4 minutes or so until completely chilled.

Step 6: On top, sprinkle the reserved coconut. And add some whipped topping, then serve. Enjoy!
