This Coconut Cream Pie will quickly become a favorite dessert, and bring back memories for those who grew up loving it!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 (9-inch) prepared graham cracker pie crust
  • 2 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed
What To Do:
  1. In a medium bowl, mix egg yolk, sugar, flour, and salt with a spoon; set aside.
     
  2. In a medium saucepan, heat milk over medium-high heat, but do not boil. Add 1/2 cup heated milk to egg yolk mixture and whisk until most lumps are out. Slowly add egg yolk mixture to remaining heated milk in saucepan; reduce heat to medium-low and cook until thickened, stirring constantly. Add butter and vanilla; stir until well mixed.
     
  3. Remove from heat and stir in coconut. Pour into pie crust.
     
  4. Chill at least 2 hours, or until set. Top with whipped topping just before serving.
Notes
  • If desired, top the pie with 2 tablespoons toasted coconut. To toast shredded coconut, spread it on a rimmed baking sheet and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven 3 to 5 minutes, or until golden. Watch carefully so it won't burn.

Backwoods Pork Chops with River Gravy

We pour a river of gravy over these mouthwateringly juicy, fried pork chops to complete our recipe for Backwoods Pork Chops with River Gravy. Between the perfectly seasoned pork and the buttermilk-based gravy, we just can't decide what we like best!
