For the Crust:

1 pre-made pie crust (9-inch), baked according to package instructions

For the Filling:

1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
3 cups half-and-half
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Topping:

1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Toasted coconut flakes, for garnish


Prepare the Pie Crust: Use a pre-made pie crust and bake it according to the package instructions. Allow it to cool completely.
Toast the Coconut: Spread the sweetened shredded coconut on a baking sheet and toast in the oven at 350°F (175°C) for 5-7 minutes, or until golden brown. Watch carefully to avoid burning. Set aside to cool.
Make the Filling: In a medium saucepan, combine half-and-half, beaten eggs, sugar, flour, and salt. Stir over medium-low heat until the mixture thickens and boils. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract and toasted coconut (reserve some for garnish). Pour the filling into the cooled pie crust and chill in the refrigerator until set, about 4 hours.
Whip the Topping: In a mixing bowl, beat the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form. Spread or pipe the whipped cream over the chilled pie.
Garnish and Serve: Sprinkle the top with toasted coconut flakes for garnish. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
