Coconut Cream Pie
How do you improve a retro classic? Start with the crust and work your way up, packing each component with maximum flavor.
Why This Recipe Works
We packed coconut into all three elements of this retro pie. Grinding sweetened shredded coconut together with Nilla Wafers made a crisp and flavorful cookie-crumb crust. Folding coconut into a milk custard gave us just the tamed tropical taste we wanted. And sprinkling toasted coconut over the whipped cream topping dressed the whole pie up with a shaggy-chic garnish.
