COCONUT CREME PIE
Coconut Creme Pie
There are two versions of Coconut pie... There is Coconut Cream and Coconut Custard... Granted both are very similar; However, Coconut Custard usually refers to a custard filling that is baked in the shell (such as a Pumpkin pie), while Coconut Cream refers to a custard or pudding cooked on the stove and once chilled, and posssibly lightened by folding in some whipped cream, is then poured into a pre-baked shell. This is my favorite Coconut Cream pie recipe... if you like alot more flavor, the 1 cup of water can be replaces with 1 cup of coconut juice. I do like to paint the inside of the crust with a little white chocolate to keep the shell from getting soggy.
