This pie is homemade AND quick and easy. The filling also makes a good puddding. Cook time is cooling time. Prep time does not include pie crust.

I didn't think I liked coconut cream pie, but I made it for a good friend who requested it for his birthday. One taste of the filling and I was hooked! It took great restraint to put the rest into the pie. I've made this several times, and every time is great. I do use real whipped cream for the topping though, and I toasted ALL the coconut.
