Crazed Mind's Coconut Cream Pie

I was so happy to make a Coconut Cream Pie this last weekend.  
And found it was pretty easy.  
But there was a few tricks along the way.

First I needed a pre baked pie shell.  
And I did not have any baking beads to keep the shell from getting so puffy.  
But I did have some dry beans.  
So that is just what I used.  
Worked great.

Next I mixed up the first part.  
3/4 cup sugar, 1/3 cup flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt.  
Stir together well.  
Then I added 2 cups of Coconut Creme coffee creamer instead of milk.  
This really helped the flavor!  
I bet I could do this with other flavors and make some amazing pies.

Stir over medium heat until it thickens and comes to a boil.  

Add 2 beaten eggs, 2 tablespoons of butter and 1 teaspoon of vanilla.  
Mix well and cook another 2 minutes.

Remove from heat, then mix in 1 cup of flaked coconut.  Stir well.  

Then pour into your baked pie shell.  
I then baked it at 375 degrees until firm and lightly browned crust.


  1. Wow, Lynette the pie looks great and I will surely look for that coconut creamer for my coffee too....awesome recipe!

  2. Really! Coffee creamer? I've never made coconut cream pie, yours looks and sounds wonderful. Thanks for dropping by my blog and commenting too. :)

  3. I have to admit that this is the only cream pie that I enjoy!


Yippee! You came to talk to me. Thanks.
You know how special that makes me feel?
Like I swallowed the moon and the stars and I just shine now!
