Coconut Cream Filling Ingredients
- 1 can coconut milk
- heavy cream enough added to coconut milk to make 3
- 3 egg yolks
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1/3 cup cornstarch
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon coconut extract
1 recipe graham cracker crust or other crust
- fresh whipped cream lightly sweetened
- 1 cup coconut flakes toasted*
Graham Cracker Crust Recipe
- 12 graham crackers crushed
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 6 tablespoons butter melted
For the Graham Cracker Crust: Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Finely crush the graham crackers in a medium sized bowl. Stir in sugar. Drizzle in butter and mix with fork until well combined. Firmly press into pie plate. Bake for 13-15 minutes, just until crust barely starts to brown. Cool completely before filling.
For the Ganache: Place chocolate chips in a heat-safe, medium sized bowl. In a small saucepan, bring the heavy cream to a boil. Pour boiling cream over chocolate chips and stir until smooth. Spread onto the prepared pie crust. Place in fridge or freezer to cool and solidify completely.
For the Coconut Cream Filling: Mix coconut milk, heavy cream, egg yolks, sugar, cornstarch and salt in a medium sized saucepan. Place over medium-low heat and bring to boil, stirring constantly. The mixture will become very thick. This may take as long as 10-15 minutes. Below you can see what the custard looks like once it’s all ready to go:
Once it reaches this consistency remove from heat and stir in coconut and vanilla extracts. Spread over cooled ganache layer and refrigerate for 3-4 hours.
Top with whipped cream and toasted coconut*.
*To toast coconut, preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spread coconut flakes onto baking sheet and place in oven. Bake for 10-12 minutes, stirring and tossing often until lightly browned.
